The first problem we encountered was the boarding, we arrived at terminal at 10:00 AM to wait until 1:00PM to board, without taking the Boarding Portrait Picture.

The second encounter was in the cabin; nothing waiting for us., ex:  Water that was purchased months before was not in cabin, had to ask for it:   No VIP gift: No complimentary Carnival water:  No Captains Party Invitation:  No robes in closet.  I had to ask for everything. 

The third disappointment was the schedule of cleaning the cabin, we had to pick what time we wanted our cabin cleaned because they only did it once a day:  morning or evening??   That goes to show that services are being cut, with less workers to do the job. 

The 4th disappointment was the shops;  wanted to buy liquor, but found that the shop (Dufry's) were sold to another vender and the prices were higher than the Dufry's in ports.  So I didn't buy any liquor.

The 5th, the schedule of Dining Room hours, and Shows in theaters  clashed, making it impossible to attend the shows because  we would get out of dinner too late.  So we wound up missing one or the other.

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation was late, as stated above, disembarkation was excellent.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
due to the weather we were unable to do excursions, and not much shopping due to holiday, all stores were closed
Onboard Activities
participated in the arts and crafts only
Since we missed most of the shows, we only saw the magician and comedian and they were so-so
Service and Staff
Our dining staff was excellent: Gary, Wiguna, Miriam were all exceptional give that fact that they were overwhelmed with more than 4 tables of 12 persons each.
