Terrible....Food was disgusting. The cheers package with is unlimited drinking is a lie. First of all it's 15 drinks a day including water. The bartenders are horrible and they do everything they can to ignore you. Once you get there attention they can only give you one drink at a time and if you are with your a partner, they have to be there to in order to get the drink. in one day i was only able to obtain 4 drinks in like 3 hours. The entire time you are there they are trying to sell you more and more stuff. as the cruise continues you keep finding out that all inclusive was nothing but a great big lie to get you on the boat. Entertainment?????????? Sucked. The music was pulled out of the twilight zone. I will never cruise again on carnival.

Our first experience on the cruise was...No one took our luggage. then we had to stand on the pool deck no talking for 45 minutes for an emergency check off. This was after making us wait at the port of miami in order to board up on the cruise. We planned to get on board at 10:30 am. we were told we would have to wait. Our rooms were not ready. Until 1:30 p.m. Boarding began at 1:30 p.m once we got to our room we were rushed out to the pool deck like i said previously for the emergency check off.

Horrible horrible horrible will never go again
