Carnival was not my first choice, but both Royal Caribbean and Norwegian claimed they were both booked during this Christmas and New Year holiday period. Not the worst ship, but obviously an older ship. Huge diversity crowds with occasional rude people stepping on/over you and in close proximity. Some polite and friendly guests. The crew was attentive and few with limited English skills when it comes to providing directions or instructions. We had problems with Migrino Beach ATV Excursion provider in Cabo San Lucas. We pre-purchased (4 x $100+) ATV rides and was aware we would pay an additional $20 each for entry fees. But, then we were hit with another $30-$35 insurance fee per ATV or given an option to leave an open credit card in case of damage to ATV. We felt the ATV park was taking advantage of tourists. Had no choice but to pay after taking a 45 min ride to the ATV park from ship landing. The 1 - 1 1/2 hr ATV guided tour was fun. Also, be aware of Stone Island and Old Town Sightseeing Tour. Tour van guide was knowledgeable of the city sites, but the beach stop and activities were of poor quality. Water toys and health quality of horses used for horse back riding were questionable. The worst part of the on-board cruise was the fitness center. The equipment that include thread machines, elliptical steppers and bikes are all in need of repair and replacement. Fitness center is in serious need of repair, renovations and HVAC upgrade. Whatever you do, do not fall for the pre-pay wi-fi and bottomless drink plans. Wi-fi connection and ability to text each other aboard ship is almost impossible. We purchased the premier Wi-fi plan to Skype and text with our teenage son at home. We went without e-mail and text messages almost the whole cruise. However, we were able to get e-mail and phone calls when in port and off ship via phone provider. We were told by Customer Service person who admitted there were problems with connectivity on the ship. We were re-refunded the cost of our wi-fi plan after making request. Bottomless Bubbles drink plan is a ripoff. Lemonade, ice tea, coffee, tea and milk are available at no charge. My daughter has never drank carbonated drinks and therefore, did not need to participate in the bottomless drink plan ($7.50 x 7days). Despite the issues that I have written about, the cruise overall was o.k. and worth getting away. But, Carnival should take immediate actions to renovate the fitness center. Read Less

To have a great Vacation. But the food way below good. We only had one Captains dinner. I ask about the 2nd dinner, and was told that xmas dinner was the 2nd. We want to the Steakhouse, and ordered Surf and Turf. But the food was cold and bunt. The soup was watered down. The best meal was the hot dogs from dell at the aft of the ship. The wait staff in the MDR was slow and not very helpful. Half the time our food was cold, or not what we ordered. The Casino was full of smoke, and very poor staff. We ask for help from the Host, Waited over 1 hour for help. We ask for a drink, and had to wait again for that. When we got to are cabin the first day, we ask for ice and two more towels. We got the ice on Monday and the towels on Tuesday afternoon. Read Less

Amazing stops , great fun through out the whole time . Amazing comedians . The cruise director lee really made the trip perfect for everyone no matter your age I even witnessed him stop in his tracks to talk to a lil girl . He kneeled down to her level and had an entire conversation made me tear up thinking of some amazing cruise directors we have had that have truly made Sam a priority before .. chefs table truly still one of the best dinning possibilities on the ship you must try this .. book early . The shows are always a real fun part of the day . Met a very nice woman at dinner her name was Annie , (73) and full of life one of the best dinners we had . Everyone asks why carnival ? Well because if you are o-100 they care and will stop to hear what you have to say . The best story I hear was a couple from paradise , they were called and told that thier trip was going to be completely covered .. amazing we talked to them night after night hearing story after story about the amazing trip .. Thank you I will keep coming back to hear more from others Read Less
