Sail Date: April 2014
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

This cruise fell so short in so many ways. The itinerary was a mess. The arrival for half a day in Key West then back on the boat to arrive in Cozumel midday the next day. We booked an excursion on that day but had to hurry back for the concert and weren't able to get out again and enjoy the port of Cozumel because the ship set sail again that night to be at sea the whole next day. The dress code was not enforced so people were arriving in the dining room in beach shorts. Screaming thru the hallways looking for their friend was loud and boisterous yet no one stopped them. The overall feel of the cruise was that of low budget. The staff had a sprinkling of great people with a majority of them just dumb smiles. I traveled on Royal Carribean for not much more money and receive much better service. The ship is old and the layout is confusiing. It's like pacman to navigate,up one elevator and over then down that elevator thru the hall and up again...ridiculous. The nightlife was weak. More

our cabin was always cleaned by the housekeeping..fresh towesl turn down service etc. you could not see out the window because it was dirty and cloudy, the bathroom floor got wet when you showered because their was a shower curtain that didn't hold the water in and their is no counter space to put your toiletries. Some times a wiff of sewerage, I don't know what that was all about.

I won't go on carnival again. Less
