First of all , we had a great time. We had 14 of us, young, old, children, married, first timers, experienced cruisers, and everyone had a blast.
Rooms - on par for Carnival. Clean, comfortable. If you want a spacious room to hang out in, book a suite or go to a hotel at a private resort, the party is not in your room.
Buffet - wasnt overly impressed about the buffet, it was hot and decent , just not much seasoning for my liking
Assigned Dining - food was great, hot, and staff like always was outstanding
JI JI's - lunch for free was great - dinner for $12.00 was outstanding
Cucina Del Capitano - lunch for free was great - dinner i did not try, but heard it was outstanding also
555 Steakhouse - be ready to spend about $50 per person, but it was wonderful
Guys Burgers - highly recommend - free- awesome burgers
Blue Iguana Cantina - highly recommend - free - great burritos and soft tacos
Pizzeria & Sandwich Deli - free and very good
Shakespot - great milkshakes and cappucinnos for a minimal charge
Atrium really nice, lots of nice shops
Liquid Lounge - great reformation on updating it, bad flow - show up 20 min early for shows
Limelight Lounge - (comedy club) - small but nice, show up 20 min early for shows
Lido Deck - decent sized pool, 2 hot tubs, lots of space between lido the surrounding areas to lay out in the sun
Serenity Deck - nice adult space with hot tub, pool etc - very nice
Waterpark - awesome - kids loved it, adults loved it - obstacle course fun too
Bars - all the bars are nicely done with their own themes
Camp Carnival was awesome as always
Casino nice with decent variation of machines, table games, and denominations on machines
All the Staff, as always was amazing, helpful, and friendly. Thanks to Junior, Dob, and Kermeena for job well done
Just FYI - 1. There are a few buckets around when it rains to catch pesky leaks. 2. also, from time to time there is a faint smell of sewer. No ryme or reason. Always random places, decks and comes and goes quickly.
This was my 17th Carnival cruise and i will be ready to book another Carnival cruise very soon.
