1) Service--Overall the service was outstanding especially in the bars and MDR.

2) Cheers Package--The drink prices were very high, so we benefited from buying this package that allows you to try a variety of drinks (under $10) with a reasonable limitation of 15 drinks per person per day. Two problems we see with the success of this program is that Carnival requires that everyone in the cabin must purchase the package (whether drinkers or not) and it doesn't allow you to buy drinks for others you meet which we find too restrictive.

Cabin Review

Cabin already showing deterioration. Small but adequate. Very basic walls lacking color. One closet door didn't fit right so kept opening and swelling. Toilet flushing issues during the night and especially bad one morning, but fixed promptly after reporting to our room steward Dennis who was very nice and worked hard to ensure we had everything needed. Provided bar soap when bath gel was not working and also extra nose strips for snoring.
