This was our first cruise on this ship. Previous cruise was on Carnival Destiny. We booked at the very last minute for a New Year's Eve cruise. This ship was completely full. Our cabin (coach)had two lower bunk style beds. This was the primary negative to our experience. The mattress was hard and the bed had a metal frame around it that made it uncomfortable. Surprisingly there was no top sheet, just a quilted blanket that was too warm for our taste. Otherwise the room was adequate for a two night cruise. We had to take an interior room so we missed out on a view. Dinners were excellent! We are picky about our food and must say that paying the extra $25 each for dining in the Cove was well worth it. We had a superb and relaxing dinner befitting a true four star restaurant. It barely misses a five star rating by a tad. Make it your business to eat there. The other night we dined in the Crystal Room, and this was just a tad below the Cove so I would say it is a solid four stars. The help were friendly, and the shows were worth watching. Embarkation went fairly smooth as well as disembarkation which took a bit longer. We spent the day at Atlantis and did the dolphin encounter. Loved it! All in all I would say that if they upgraded their bedding we would be steady passengers, but would not return unless they improved on the bedding.

Not bad at all!
