Going back to Carnival!
I can't give this cruise a very good review. We travel with extended family and this year we had 10 people. We all agreed next year we will be back on a Carnival cruise! The food was fair, really nothing special at all. The beds were not comfortable and the pillows were like pancakes! We had a group of 300, 15 year old Brazilian girls on our cruise. All of the music, the whole cruise was in Spanish and so were most of the TV channels. There is a big screen TV out above the pool deck which played a movie at night. The rest of the time it had advertising for Royal Carribean. Seemed like a waste to us. The hallways by the staterooms smelled like poop! It seems the ship has plumbing problems, we heard people complaining at guest services also. The crew was nice, but they aren't really fun. They don't seem like they enjoy their jobs. We also had a medical problem and were told the doctor wouldn't even look at our son unless we paid $140 for a consultation. We couldn't believe it! I must say, we never had a medical problem before on Carnival, so I don't know if this is the norm. To us it seemed a little crazy. This was our 6th cruise, 5 on Carnival. The 7th will be with Carnival!
