Cabin: Aft-View Extended Balcony

This was our third cruise with Carnival and by far the most disappointing. I do not say not to cruise Carnival but I wouldn't cruise this ship again. For those who have cruised before normally the ship is constantly being cleaned either by the hand rails being wiped down, elevator buttons being cleaned or the floors being vacuumed. I rarely seen this happening durning the time we were on the ship. One day in particular a person dropped a prescription pill on the floor in the walk way on the panarama deck sometioin the morning and it was still there into the evening.

The comedians were enjoyable as well as most of the entertainment. However, it did seem there were fewer trivia like games during the day.

The only other negative review issue was lounge chairs were very limited and yet there would be stacks of them not set out on for use.

Cabin Review

Aft-View Extended Balcony

Cabin 8N

As far as the state room when we were able to enter our sheets had a long black hair in the middle of the bed, sheets were stained, floor was not vacuumed or poorly done and hair was in the drawers. On my previous cruise if it you walked out of your state room the stewards would seemingly walk in behind you to straighten the spot you were sitting. This was by far the furthest thing of what happened on this cruise.
