terrible experience

Sail Date: March 2013
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Miami

The ship : it is decorated in the typical Carnival Style, it looks exactly like a floating carnival of rio.
The pools : freezing, small.
The hot tubs : cold and full of children half the time (when they were not eating)
The food : like the one at home, often what remained from previous meal showed up again.
The original food was good but the good things finished and were not replaced, most of the time.
Breakfast : nothing really good. The pastry was lumps of underbaked flour.
the drinks : apple and orange straight from the carton, and not of the best quality.
Water and ice: often missing
The crew : ignored the passengers, even if you had to stand in line half an hour to get their attention. Tipically: the sliding roof was left open the first day and night (no one attended the pool party, windy and freezing) and kept tight close from there on. Just to mention it : the "passing of the tropic" party was held in the closed pool area where no one could see More anything from outside and above. The lucky ones were the ones on which King Neptune trod his way to the center of the stage.
The escursions : a real rip off, they frighten people with stories of locals being dangerous and you end up paying twice as much the same thing.
Entertainement : non existing.

the staff : doing their best, the only positive thing in this cruise. Less

in front of the cabin you have the engine room for the hot tubs on deck ) : very noisy but inside the noise is not heard. Would avoid
