Too expensive for lack of service

Sail Date: April 18, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

I suffer from back pain, bed was extremely uncomfortable, on the last night my husband slept on the side I slept before and he also woke up with back pain.  I travel with my two grandkids 5 yr old and almost 2 yr old and we spend some extra time in room, tv programming is terrible, cartoon reruns were annoying, if they wanted snack none is available unless you go to the seaview café and you have to pay.  On formal night (lobster night) I asked for another one (lobster tail) and was denied (hey for what you pay for the cruise) they should give you as much as you want.  Anyway I think I will continue with my future travels with carnival cruises, most cheaper, snacks free beyond 9:00 pm, even offer premier movies, and again, for a far cheaper price...

Ship Quality
It has signs to be old ship
Food and Dining
No snacks available beyond dining time
