Wanted to sail on Carnivals flagship. Enjoyed the cruise first the good.. So much to do, thrill theater was a blast as well as the sky ride. Has all the eating venues, Ji's Ji's Asian was wonderful and well worth the $15.00 up charge. Crew was friendly and did there best to take care of us. The Ledo market place is huge and decor is very nice. The Cons the atrium has zero wow factor, Carnival missed the mark with it. It is small and not grand in any way other than a huge led fixture that isn't to impressive. Ledo pool deck area seems smaller than the Dream class ships fills up by 8:00 am. However they did tag chairs and remove items which is the first time I have ever seen this. The restrooms on the Ledo deck are way to small to service the amount of people on the deck. The Liquid lounge is the worse I have seen on any Carnival ship. Flat floor and poles blocking views on upper deck. Better get there early to get a seat on deck 4. Back of ship on deck 10 smelled like sewage consistently which was disappointing because it is a nice area with the Seafood Shack which had awesome lobster rolls.
