Thought we would try Carnival for the first time, but were disappointed.  The main reason is the quality of service onboard.  Some of the staff in the bars could barely bring a smile to their face.  Live entertainment provided was very good.  We are Karaoke fans, however, and the system and selection of music was very bad.  There is just no need to use discs anymore when all songs can be on a computer.  In general, the food was okay, and the service in the dining room was the best we received anywhere on the ship.

We are smokers, and realize that smoking is now very limited on cruises.  However, in the few sections of the ship that allowed it, it seems that NONE of the cruise staff were inclined to empty an ashtray.

We will stick to RC or NCL from now on.

Tip: Eden Rock is a great place within walking distance from the ship to rent snorkel equipment and snorkel without paying for an excursion.
