We chose this cruise has a family vacation. This was me and my husbands 2nd cruise and my 6 year old sons first cruise. Going through check in and security was pretty smooth and planned out very well. We weren't able to go right away to our cabin so we went to the dining they had hamburger's and hot dogs and such all ready to eat. We relaxed by the pool for a little bit and then we was able to go to our cabin. Our cabin was very nice and clean and was ready for our son also. They had a bed on the ground for him. We then went and walked around. Our other cruise there was music playing and dancing and was just fun this cruise I was not very impressed at all. There was not very much for us todo. A few shows not very much dancing at all. The crew was not very interactive in entertainment with the rest of the cruisers. But we did love our cabin keeper. He was awesome! I was also very disappointed with the cruise to because we had two days on the cruise in which it rain and one of the days we were in mexico. The cruise entertainment people did not have back ups for the cruise with inside activities due to the rain. Over all I will not go on this cruise again. As I am getting ready to book my next cruise and with Carnival putting a sour taste in my mouth after this cruise I don't want my next to be this way!
