Review summary

this Carnival ship is gorgeous, has a retro feel to the décor, colors are great, the atrium centerpiece is spectacular with its changing scenes, the shopping and eating layout is much better and even though it is a large ship - moving from one end to the other is easier than on most large ships, it has more floors that travel the length than most ships too, I never felt like I was forever walking to get somewhere which was very nice, crew is very nice and always smiling, they seem to enjoy their job and are proud of the ship, the food selection in the Lido Marketplace was better than I've experienced on any other ship I've sailed, was not impressed with the dining room though, service was very slow and food was not as good as I expected, we stayed in a Spa Balcony cabin which was very nice, the only problem I found was the balcony was dirty when we arrived and was made even worse when the outside of the ship was cleaned while in port. overall the cruise was great and I would recommend this ship for your next vacation

cabin was roomy and nicely decorated, bathroom layout was better, balcony was dirty when we arrived and made worse when ship was washed while in port - someone needs to make sure they check the balconies after those outside cleanings

Ship tip

make sure you watch the daily activity sheet, there are many things that are available only on sea days
