Ship needs to be updated. Plumbing problems which resulted in the constant gurgling in the shower. Guest services was very attentive but the problem persisted the whole cruise. A constant banging on the pipes most mornings. That was an irritant. We were on a much needed vacation. Rest was so needed. Our dining staff was awesome! Our Lido Deck selections were very tasteful. The staff we pass daily were quite friendly and spoke often. Our Diamond Level gift was in very poor taste. A lanyard with Carnival Cruise Line on it. How cheap! Embarkation is getting less complicated every cruise as long as you have your proper paper work completed. The ports were suitable. Disembarking went very well. Improvements were very noticeable. We didn’t cruise with anyone else this time. This is the first time we flew to Ft Lauderdale and then shuttled to the port in Miami. I was a little nervous about leaving out the same day we arrived, but it was okay. I would recommend this ship again ONLY after updating.
