Sail Date: Jun 2014

Stayed in deck 6 midship, with extended balcony. Ship had recently been refurbished, however I didn't really see signs of this. One lamp shade had tremendous amounts of stain, the bath smelled foul, the wallpaper in the halls was torn and beaten by luggage, and the mural in the main atrium had a huge, drooping, rip midway up. The bed was super comfy, as was the pillow. It was nice to have shower gel supplied in a wall mounted pump in the shower. The food in Truffles was great, as was food on the Lido during dining hours. 24 hour food was less than desirable, as was room service: cold / warm deli sandwiches and chips. But room service dessert was good! Wait staff was super nice, as was housekeeping staff; however, shop staff was pushy and snippy. Definitely a huge push to get you to buy, buy, buy, on the ship & in ports. Could have done without that. It seemed 50% of the scheduled daily ship events revolved around getting you to part with your money. Serenity deck was really nice (if you can get a seat). We finally got a seat on the last sailing day because we made sure we got there by 7:30am. Serenity deck isn't very serene though because the water slides are right above the Serenity deck so loads of screaming children. The comedy shows (adult only) were freaking hilarious! Definitely a must see. I guess the bottom line is that if you're looking for a budget cruise line, Carnival Is the way to go. I wasn't overly impressed but I did have an okay time. I will probably return to the Disney cruise line or may try Royal Caribbean or Princess.

Cabin Review

This room has the ability to be joined to the room next door, not a positive thing if the inhabitants next door are loud young men. All sounds travel right through the joining door.
