The ship itself was large but not well appointed. It was hard to navigate, and the public rooms seemed remote, with no large, open expanses.
Entertainment was 'so so'.....one night good, the next tolerable. Overall, the ship's atmosphere was low key. It was anything but a charged, positive, happy environment. I have to wonder if the employees are disgruntled with Carnival.
The one bright spot was the food. It was very good. We ate in the dining room each evening, but there are many other options, including pizza, Mongolian grill, burrito bar, sushi and buffet. The formal dining room reminded me of an upscale coffee shop in decor, and the wait staff was anything but superb. We chose the dining time option, so we encountered many different servers--all impersonal and unattentive, with maybe one or two exceptions.
I don't mean to put such a negative spin on my review; however, I think that any discerning, experienced cruiser would be gravely disappointed in this cruise line and ship.
