  3. Carnival Magic
Relatives wanted to go Carnival. Guy Fieri burgers were EXCELLENT!!!!!! Dining room food and service, breakfast and dinner was excellent!!! The comedy saved us. Kathleen Dunbar had us roaring our guts out, with her PG and Xrated shows. Motown dance trivia was excellent. Strangers shouted out the answers to people who needed help identifying the songs and we all got in our old grooves and moves. Embarkation was very quick and smooth. The pools were so tiny - we are not Olympic swimmers but none of us [out of 10] went in the pools except me for 5 minutes, in the whole week. Our complaints were the entertainment was disappointing. The entertainers could dance very good and they put in a lot of effort; but the singing was strained at times, music was unknown/poor. Their director should start over. It even caused fights in our group - nothing else to do so people stayed...but others wanted to leave.

It was OK
