The first three days of the cruise was bad due to the weather not the captain. I was in the room on those days. They need to put fridges in the rooms because some people have medicines that need to be in the fridge. They also need to put the menu on the television so that people know what is being serve for that night. Some people don't like fish food and fried food, Speaking of fried food that was all that was on the lido deck for lunch and diner. They also need to give the schedule for the next day for tours or entertainments the night before so that people could book their excursion tours or know what to plan for the next day. When we went on our tour in Aruba it was three in a half hours long which was fine, but when we got back to go shopping the stores were all close and no one got to shop in Aruba. The smoking areas for people were close due to bad weather, so I do think that they need to give one side of the lido deck open to smokers, not only for the adults but for teenagers too because the teenagers can not go into the casinos. Otherwise the trip was soso. Very disappointed. Also when we got off the ship and got a porter he broke my luggage and did not report it. I like Carnival cruise line but not this ship. Will not go on it again. Read Less

Like others, read some of the reviews and debated booking it, but it was the dates and itinery we wanted and so we booked it and for the most part did enjoyed it. Cabin was good (outside) and luckily was mid/forward as this was good for us. Serenity area good, provided you get up early to get sunbeds as they are gone by 8 a.m and you dont mind just a plunge pool with very little room, to cool down in. Other Lido area was very crowded and pool tiny so did not go there except for drinks. Show lounges are both disappoining after other ships, but staff try their best to work with a crowded ship. The ship is very anti disability and if you cannot get out of a wheelchair you will struggle as there is no space or usable ramps to many areas- the deck 11 serenity area being a really bad one to access.Dining room was o.k. and food mostly good but at times long waits for food. Drink waiters were very overworked and during sea days very hard to get drinks and long waits at bars. Shows were excellent apart from the juggler and game show which should have been saved for camp carnival. Comedy club was good but extremely crowded. If you have a wheelchair ask Noonan about using the rear exit. Elevators were sometimes a problem as they were slow and not all lifts go to all floors. This was made worse by lazy able bodied people hogging them when only going one floor!! This sounds very negative but just pointing out the negatives. Ports were good but didnt do ship excursions as very expensive, we did tours locally and had no issues anx much better value for money. Medical emergency on board was handled well and We were impressed with Carnival on this score. In summary this ship will never be as good as the others in the fleet as Carnival have squashed too many cabins in and the outside areas and lounges are therefor poor in comparison but zt the right price it is worth thinki g about, but if the same itinery comes up on a different ship then choose a different ship.
