Chose this cruise to accommodate our grandson's school schedule and our work schedules as well as a drivable port. The ship is aging and even though they've added Guy's and the Blue Iguana, the ship is still showing signs of age, paint over obvious rusting, window seam deterioration, etc. We still enjoyed the cruise in general, but also had some less than perfect weather at our ports, not Carnival's fault. Dining was ok, we changed our dining time from late to early after our first night (grandchildren get tired too early for late seating) and wished we had been able to take our original waiter along (Smith). He was excellent, the subsequent waiter seemed unorganized and we waited a long time for our courses. Again, with small children, promptness is important and past experience had some "activities" for children at dinner, nothing provided other than a magician happened by the first evening. Lido dining was very good, especially the pizza and late night offerings. Love Guy's burgers and the Blue Iguana's tacos.

Ecstasy is aging...
