This was a short cruise to celebrate our anniversary. Unfortunately we had terrible weather which was not Carnival's fault obviously. We are in our 50s and definitely the wrong demographic for Carnival. Dining room and buffet were very chaotic experiences. We did have a lovely dinner in the Nouveau Restaurant but the food in the dining room was very average. Only one room clean per day where most cruise lines are morning and evening. Cabin was old and in need of repair, particularly the mouldy bathroom. Lovely adults area, Serenity, unfortunately it is right below the Waterworks so constant screaming children which negates the serenity! The staff were friendly but mostly looked dishevelled and tired. Our biggest complaint was the smoking areas which are huge and right near the main pool area where family and children spend their day. Smoking areas should be well away from the main public areas, very unpleasant to walk around those decks, constant clouds of smoke.

Disappointing
