Sail Date: Jun 2019

We chose this cruise because of the date and it was out of Tampa.

Positives-Embarkment was very quick. Our interior room was roomier than most and breakfast in the dining room was great. We also liked Guys Burgers. Love the hub app to communicate with family.

Negatives-set up of ship. You could not get from one end to the other on some decks which was a pain. Decore was dreary. Pools were extremely crowded. Not Carnival’s fault but would not cruise again in June-very hot (we usually cruise in April). Service in dining room at dinner was VERY slow. Line in Cazumel was packed on departure deck and took over an hour to get off ship. Departure in Tampa was over an hour late and lines were slow. This was our 7th cruise and by far was worst ship and departure. No large open interior areas. If this had been our 1st Carnival cruise, I would never go an another one.
