This ship is lovely and has some beautiful spaces. The food is great even in the inclusive dining rooms ( also, Brazilian and Hibachi). We had some service issues in the Brazilian restaurant as we were required to reach across each other plates to grab meat from the skewer which was beyond rude. Otherwise you must say you are allergic to something for them to prepare your food without an ingredient. Otherwise they will ignore you and act like they can't make it that way.. (like Nachos without guac!) If you say allergic, they fall over themselves to prepare your food. Everything on ship is extra, video games for the kids, bottled water.. be prepared to spend another few hundred on ship even without any real purchases. Adult pool is impossible to even get a seat to dip your feet in as its filled with 18 and 19 year olds getting drunk. Lounge chairs in sun or shade are impossible to get unless you go at 6 am and throw a towel down. Be prepared for long lines at water slides and all activities on board. Iconcierge app is 8 bucks a phone to use but well worth it to communicate with people on board and a nice feature. Comedy shows, Cirque show and rock of ages are all excellent.

Ship Tip

Everything is expensive and extra.. be prepared to spend more money on board. Drinks package is a must as they are very expensive with service charges on every single thing. I did not feel this nickel and dimes on carnival although the ships are not as nice.
