Review SummaryThis is the worst cruise ship I've ever been on. One thing after another everyday kept happening because this ship was so old and disgusting. I could not believe that this ship was actually sailing in business. It was significantly old and dilapidated. Full of rusty areas on balconies, old moldy bathroom. wallpaper peeling. fixtures worn out and in disrepair. Our stateroom door lock was actually broken for 2 days. the maintainence crew said they fixed it over 5 times but still didn't lock. Everytime we left our stateroom we took a chance. One night a man actually came wondering into our room! Cockaroaches, YES, Cockaroches were in our stateroom and in hallways! we freaked out as one crawled on my leg. Went to customer service, (they actually found it funny and were actually smerking and chuckling in our faces) they did nothing but send a security gaurd and housekeeper to our room, wasted a whole evening on board while they turned our room upside down and inside out for nothing at all. No appoligies, no compensation for our frustrations and loss. not anything. Food at the buffets were very little and not what I was used to on other ships. Buffet food was not refreshed enough and lines were terribly long. Pools were always closed for maintainence and unknown reasons during hours they were supposed to be open. Most of the entertainment was cheap and corny, although the piano bar was ok. the live bands and music were all spanish, which is ok but where is the variety for all of the population? If we wouldn't of made our own fun at port I would say this vacation was not worth the money! THe ports were fun! we dreaded getting back on the "Stinky Old Ship" as we called it! We should of been refunded our money back! CARNIVAL NEVER AGAIN!
