Review SummaryThis ship is small and very old! It is time for it to be retired. Thank goodness we were traveling with a group of 20 or this would have been a dreadful vacation! The food was aweful (dried out fish and fowl smelling once at lunch, could not cook red meat to liking for most of our party several nights), had some very rude servers in the dining room at breakfast and lunch, unknowledgeable bar waitstaff, tiled floor around one of the hot tubs, someone in our party was hurt from a fall on this wet tile!!! A lawsuit wairing to happen! Other hot tub was completely covered with non-skid material around hot tub. Water in cabins (sink and shower) was rusty looking! Walls and drawers rattled all night long from the vibration of the ship - even up to the dining room! Staterooms were very clean and comfortable otherwise. Cabin steward was excellent! Cruise director and entertainment were great. There were far too many bad things about this cruise to recommend, this was my 2nd Carnival cruise and 7th time sailing all together. I feel like I know what to expect on a cruise. First time cruisers don't know any better! If this was my first time sailing w/ carnival, I would NEVER try them again!
