I chose this cruise for 3 reasons 1. Itinerary 2. Price 3. Carnival Past Guest I wanted to give Carnival another try since I’ve been hearing wonderful things about it... And honestly this cruise did not disappoint.... the entertainment was fabulous, the food in the MDR was fantastic, all of the staff was super pleasant and it did not seem to be “fake” we had good conversations with the staff that we encountered... my room steward Leo was by far the BEST! He is absolutely a caring human being and our room was always clean with all our needs met. And on that note I’ve been on many other cruises, and I must say that never had I had the opportunity to interact with the maitre’de she was absolutely wonderful a total joy her name is Larisa... our waiter Martin and Asst. Waiter Mamerto were both super fantastic...overall a wonderful experience too bad that carnival has let go a bit on maintenance of their ships even though they are a bit old doesn’t mean that they should not keep them looking good... I was surprised to see so much rust and dirty or stained windows it made the ship look really bad I have never seen this before on Carnival’s fleet and yes the rooms are dated but at least they were clean. The menu has improved immensely as well there was a time where the food was unbearable to eat so glad that this time around all though it was “cruise food” everything we had tasted amazing! And the only other complaint is that the cabins were very warm we had 3 cabins and they were all very warm... which I noticed it was on many reviews... we complained several times they did send someone to check it and even offered a fan, which we saw them bringing it to our room but somehow never made its way to our room I believe it was given to someone who has platinum status and not us poor “gold” status passenger, but other than that we had an amazing time... the shows in the theater were fantastic... what I remembered from the golden carnival years so glad they are back
