This was our first cruise in several years and our very first cruise with Carnival. We really enjoyed our trip! Here are a few specifics:
Ship- The ship was clean, beautifully decorated and easy to navigate. We were in a room with a balcony and were suprised by the amount of room. We'll never cruise without a balcony. Breakfast there in the morning and sunsets in the evening were spectacular.
Food- Dinner was fantastic with excellent choices. We purchased the least expensive wine package and were suprised by the quality. We only had two days sea but weren't terribly impressed by the breakfast or lunch buffet, but really enjoyed the sushi and fish and chips options.
Entertainment- The comedians were pretty good, the other entertainment was marginal. The last couple of nights we decided to sit on the deck and listen to music which we enjoyed far more than the shows.
Service- The service was excellent. The entertainment staff was great, the cruise director was approachable and informative and the entire staff went out of their way. I've heard less than favorable reviews of the Carnival staff, but if our experience was nothing but positive.
