Now we know why Carnival was described as the "Walmart" of all cruise lines. If you like throwing yourself into crowds of loud, obnoxious, unpolished people; then this cruiseline is for you! With almost thirty different places for food and beverage service, only a handful are worth acknowledging. Tacky entertainment to the point of embarrassment, and mediocre at best food and shopping, this cruiseline wreaks CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP! If you are a conservative personality or easily offended by the lifestyles of the uncouth, please do not waste your money, you are risking great disappointment. The condition of the ship for only being two years old was shocking. The Havana pools were rusted all around the tiles and the pool floor was covered with a green film. The only pool maintenance we witnessed, was a girl with a pool skimmer. Our room 6467 was in the Havana suites, extended balcony aft view. The room was very nice and the gentlemen that maintained them for the week, did it very efficiently. Disembarktion was a nightmare! Don't hurry to get in line to get out because it was hours! Serpentine lines of angry people, screaming babies, frustrated parents and crew members alike, di yourself a favor- and just wait in a line or restaurant until the hoards of ignorance get off. DO NOT waste your money on Carnival transportation to and from the cruise port! This will track on an hour each way. Take an Uber and pay half as much money with faster service. If you must take this vessel of deplorables, DO get the "Cheers" drink package and DO buy the "Faster to ther Fun" ticket.
