This was our first cruise. The ship is HUGE and luxurious. There were over 2,000 passengers on board, and over 900 staff, so the staff:passenger ratio is excellent. You rarely ever felt crowded. There are plenty of great areas for adults ... Read more

Was worried about some reviews but as this was our first cruise we had nothing to base it on so we just went for it. Food was very good and service in the MDR was fantastic as they make you and your kids very welcome. Buffet was not bad ... Read more

To stand and wait over 4 hours in the heat without water, food or seating to get on board was not a good start, Carnival then refunded 25% of fare, okay fair enough. Then to get a cabin where the kids running through the ship all night ... Read more
