This was truly the best of all of our cruises on Carnival - the ship was always clean and comfortable. The MDR meals we selected were all excellent and the staff we enjoyed there (Henry-Team Headwaiter, Michael-Team waiter, Rommel-Asst. Team Waiter and our Wine Steward) were attentive without being overbearing. Sometimes they knew what we wanted before we did!! And based on my request for a particular style / taste of Red Wines, the choices offered were exceptional. And our Maitre d' (Shane) made our last dinner on-board very special for our anniversary Our Housekeeping crew (Arnold, Jurianto and Rodelio) went out of their way to ensure we had a most enjoyable cruise. Every request was met with a positive reply and prompt services we needed. All around the ship we encountered only positive attitudes with all of the crew and officers. We had a Cruise Critic Meet & Greet on the first SeaDay - at the Sunset Bar aft on Deck 10. The guys and gals there were fantastic, putting together even the most exotic cocktail request without any difficulties. (And... the Margaritas were fine and each one included a $5 'double play' coupon for the casino!!) We did enjoy the production shows which were VERY well done!! Good choreography, good music and excellent performances by the singers and dancers. We especially had fun with the late nite comedy show when most of the show was interaction with the guests and very quick and funny responses to situations. Did we have a problem? - Yes! Did we report it to Guest Relations? - Yes! The response to correct the situation was speedy (almost instant), and the sincere apology by the Senior Guest Relations Supervisor (Ines Uzar) was exceptional!! In the words from a favorite Jimmy Buffett song: "It's been a Lovely Cruise". To complete the review: Embarkation was easy and fast, from arrival by taxi to the Registration for our cards to the first on-board welcome, there were no long lines or waits. Disembarkation was slow and with long (but fast moving) lines for luggage and the usual Customs and Immigration checkpoint.

Best of our Cruises on Carnival!!
