This was our first time sailing on Carnival and we loved it! We had heard negative reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. The crew was friendly and helpful. We had no issues arriving or leaving the ship. Our cabin was clean and extremely comfortable for two. We had the anytime dining and never had to wait for a table longer than 20 minutes. We had a party of four and had a table by the windows 3 out of 4 times we ate in the dining room. The buffet was perfect for breakfast and lunch. I would not recommend the buffet for dinner. We were able to save lounge chairs near the pool on sea days without any issues. We would choose our chairs prior to going for breakfast. Carnival has several lounge chairs available for those who want to sun themselves during sea days. We traveled during spring break and found the spring breakers to be acting appropriately and respectful. I would recommend this cruise line and I will personally travel on Carnival again,
