This was a good cruise.  There are a lot of stops, did wish we had a cruise day in the middle just to break it up some because we were on the go all the time.  Never been so wanted to see as much as possible.  Food menu in the dinning room was not as good a Carnival has been in the past.  I think they are trying to push you towards the specialty dinning.  Sad since you pay so much for the cruise to begin with.  Over all had a great time.

Cabin / Stateroom
Loved Frank he was GREAT!!!!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
The time to have to put your luggage out the night before was very early compared to other cruises I have been on. 8:00 - 10:30 is very early. Even asked the staff about this, they said it was early compared to other ships they had worked on. Normally you have till midnight.
Ship Quality
Have seen better ships but there where some things on this ship I had not seen so it was nice to see. Loved the bicycle ride around the ship but the wait was so long. They should have a better way to have you ride this.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Most of the stuff going on seem to be when we where off the boat or at dinner.
Children's Programs Did not bring children on the cruise so can not comment
The shows most of the time seem to be during dinner at 8:15 dinning so did not get to see a lot of the show. Most cruises did a early show and a late show so no matter what time you where eating you could see it. This cruise did not seem to have that.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Food has been better on Carnival cruises.
