Let me simply say-This is our 8th Carnival Cruise. Our very first cruise was in August 2003 on the Carnival Conquest. We have compared every single cruise we have taken on carnival to this one ship and had high expectations as this was the "conquest". This review is a comparison to the then and now.
Beautiful with very little noticeable wear and nice work refinishing the boat. I do miss the Egyptian space...but loved the changes as well. We loved the burger bar and updated pool. However, there isn't enough seats on the deck for passengers on sea days. I never found a seat after 9:30am. I'm not a sun goddess...so I mean NO seats in the shade either. This might be because of not enough staff watching and too many seats saved.
