Service was very good both from cabin steward, bar, dining room and Lido. Food was very good except I found that some food on Lido (pork chops, beef) seemed to be tough and may have been recycled. Entertainment staff was very good except ... Read more

Good - the staff. Every one gave 110%. We often were greeted with "welcome back" as if the staffer recognized us from a prior cruise - or from a prior day onboard - or observed our color-coded prior cruiser room card. In any ... Read more

This was a family cruise of sixteen people. Our cabin was roomy, clean, cool and big enough for eight grandchildren to use as a focal point. The food was acceptable but below our previous experienced cruise. Our first carnival cruise was ... Read more
