My wife's Birthday surprise didn't turn out as expected, just a money magnet pay extra for everything, plus surcharges and gratuities on drinks and services. Will not be travelling with Carnival ever again, take advice DONT GO WITH CARNIVAL, Entertainment not worth going to ,pay for Imax movies, pay to use sauna, food and service need attention (same menu every night) pay extra for specialty menu, service slow, unable to dress table cutlery (had to ask for correct cutlery most evenings)pay extra for speciality coffee . Ok if you like Bingo and Casino .Not on our list to do, prefer a more adult cruise with a half decent entertainment programme, which is included in the price instead on being ripped off by Carnival to get every cent they can, plus extra tax on your account that comes as a shock when settling at the end of the cruise, Don't Go. Very few deck guides (had to go to lifts for guides) more signage needed. Cabin adequate (7238) for two adults, had to put clothes away in wardrobe/cupboard each time we changed our attire. Cabin steward not very attentive ,PJs left on bedside table, but always greeted us with a smile. We had visited most of the ports of call on other cruises and made our own way(just as well Carnival tours where very expensive(BE WARNED) book tours before going (check them out on line)Cruise Excursions half the price.
