We chose this cruise because of the date only. Have sailed on Princess, Royal Carribean and Celebrity but none of those fit our itinerary, so we kind of knew what we were getting into.
First, some of the good points: Casino personnel very friendly. All staff at restaurants and rooms do a great job. All staff were very attentive to our needs.
Now the not so great stuff: At the adult pool a passenger slipped and hit head. The tile floor was very slippery. My wife and son also slipped. This woman was hurt fairly badly and it took 20 minutes before medical staff arrived. It only took about 5 minutes for security to arrive and they were more concerned about erasing people's videos and pics. She was eventually carted off in a wheel chair and took statements from us but would not allow us info to contact the person who slipped.
Elevator got stuck in atrium full of quests.
Medical emergency- passenger had to leave in Jamaica
Kids running wild all over ship, banging on doors at night. Babies crying in shows
Entertainment very poor. Comedians very mediocre, big shows very amateurish. Food was plentiful but very average.
Passengers mostly young crowd, many dressed sloppily for dinner, even the dress up nights. Staff did not really refuse anyone entry because of the way they were dressed.
Overall, I will never cruise on Carnival again and wished there was another cruise line that fit our schedule.
Will save you a lot of money by not booking through the cruise line.
