I've been on many cruises, this was the worse. We arrived at our room 8493 on Saturday and immediately noticed a strong smell of sewer gas in the adjacent hall and our room, we waited until Tuesday to call the service desk thinking it would go away, nothing was done. after numerous complaints and a few staff members coming into our room confirming the odor all that was done was spraying some kind of disinfectant that masked the smell for maybe a hour.
The food was mediocre at best mostly taste less but plenty of it, the comedy was entertaining, the musical show was like a high school musical, very unprofessional (we left before the end), The pool side entertainment was lame, the "challenge the crew" entailed who could bounce a ping pong ball off the paddle the longest.
The shore excursion was great,Catamaran/champagne cruise. Our room staff was great they were the only ones that knew our names and always said hello. The hotel directer was good, he worked out a very small compensation for our 7 days of living with a room with a smell.
We will not be cruising Carnival again. Our previous cruise was on Royal Caribbean which was great.
