Sail Date: Nov 2013

My husband and I are Platinum level cruisers and have been on eight different Carnival ships, so we were excited to book the 16 day transatlantic cruise from Barcelona to New Orleans leaving Barcelona on November 1, 2013. We enjoyed the cruise but were very disappointed with the ship itself, which we were led to believe was a totally new ship with a name change to prove it. It is not a totally new ship, merely one emerging from a glorified dry dock. Out of all of the Carnival ships we have been on, it is our least favorite and we would never book it again.

But it's not fair to focus on the shortcomings of the ship without first stopping to note the things that went well on this cruise:
