After reading the negative reviews we were a little concerned..well lesson learnt...always make up your own mind before listening to others. We could not fault a single thing about this ship, staff, food or entertainment. We ate like kings and were made to feel special too. The staff work their socks off to make sure you have a lovely time.
I have to mention the Camp Carnival kids club. Our children are aged 7 and 4 and begged us to go all the time. They absolutely loved it and the staff were fantastic with them, I felt so comfortable leaving them there, and we even braved leaving the ship on one port whilst they were in there. I must admit we didn't venture far but at least you have the opportunity to do so if you wish.
Our cabin was on the 1st floor and we had a port hole. The room was spacious enough and the kids could sit in the shelf to look out! Our cabin man, RJ was fab serviced our room twice a day and always left fab towel shaped animals and built up a great bond with the kids.
All of the food we ate was first class, and the Italian with a small extra charge was well worth the money for a special meal and surroundings.
The water park was great fun, and we never had a problem finding seats or beds.
People that book this cruise need to understand that with 4000 people on board you are bound to get the odd crowded area or may have to wait 5 minutes for food and if this is going to be a problem then book on a smaller ship! We loved every minute.....can't wait to cruise with carnival again one day.
