They called this their "flagship". The food was horrible! Not ONE meal was anything above average. The "prime" rib was anything but.... The filet mignon tasted like a sirloin cut in a round puck...the shrimp cocktail was cocktail shrimp...far from jumbo...lobster tails were tiny and tasteless. On deck..there were more cushions with rips and tears than not. The crew did NOTHING to enforce their rules!! Kids frequented the serenity (21 and over) deck. People were allowed to throw a towel or other item on chairs thereby "reserving" them and no crew member EVER checked them. There is NO pool for adults...so if You want to swim it is with children..NO THANKS!! This ship felt dirty as soon as We boarded. The carpets look dirty and worn. There was a creaking in our stateroom that kept waking My Wife up...the informational channel on the tv didn't work half the time..There is NO WOW FACTOR ON THIS SHIP!! NONE! This was our 4th Cruise...the 2nd AND LAST with Carnival...they let us down..there is nothing worse than feeling You WASTED THOUSANDS on a vacation!!

Never on Carnival again!!

The cabin was an ocean balcony stateroom. It was cramped and showed signs of wear.
