We chose Carnival because it was close by. Lets review: 1. We notified the department for special needs we had a special needs son, we were only offered someone to wheelchair him to our cabin. not handicap friendly at all. 2. The smell in our Balcony Room and hallway was the smell of a backed up sewer. When brought it to the attention of the management, they could not smell it at first.Then when other guests started complaining, all they did was cover up the smell with air freshener, but the smell was back quickly.We managed to get 10% room credit from the manager. Having asthma, it wasn't a pleasant experience. 3. The food was terrible. been on cruises before. The cruise companies are supposed to pride themselves on the food. 4. If not for the customer service from the underpaid staff, we would have given a terrible rating. Bottom line, no more Carnival for us.
