chose this trip for convenience and price i guess....i can't recommend this ship......needs a remodeling, badly. the smell of raw sewage near the end was sickening, of course, and.should never be allowed. the bedding was beyond worn out. it was our third cruise with carnival in twelve months and overall we enjoyed the first two more. I've found carnivals crews to be friendly and hard working, i don't expect to be treated like royalty, as some do, remembering my name's not required. Conversing with the crew can be challenging. this was a very, very rowdy crowd, unattended children ran the hall at full speed shouting all night, every where it seemed very loud music blasted forcing the drunks to shout over each other and the music. If they can feed everyone all they want why do they need to charge extra for tea in the dinning room???? embarkation and leaving the ship was very smooth and fast, cant complain there.

nassau's very dirty and smelly, the best way to see it is from the ship's top deck.
