Sail Date: Sep 2016
Cabin: Cloud 9 Spa suite

long time Carnival cruisers (platinum) but at $6k for this cruise (plus airfare and hotels) we were fairly underwhelmed with the new ship

Dinner in the two main dining rooms were a disappointment - unlike even other cruise ship e've been on, these have the ambiance of a Denny's or Mac Donald - very plain and not what one would expect from the newest addition to the fleet - formica table tops - service was good - food was mostly just adequate - again not what we were expecting from this ship

Burgers were good/taco/burrito bar also good (altho must be the only Mexican restaurant in the world that has no chips and salsa???)- seafood place for lunch - that you pay extra for was just plain awful. main Buffets were ok.

Cabin Review

Cloud 9 Spa suite

Cabin SS

Our cabin was a Spa Suite - 11206. fairly roomy/nothing very special for a suite - lacks plugins - one in room - none in bathroom?
