We booked the cruise because of the home port, the ports of call and the dates just lined up perfectly with our child's school break. We overall were satisfied we had the vacation and we were happy we went on vacation, but... The ship was definitely subpar. It showed signs of aging everywhere. We had a leak in our room and with it being Thanksgiving week there were no free cabins elsewhere on the boat. They did fix the leak, but it took two days. We did notice other areas on the ship were leaking as well. The crew was positive and helpful, though it did seem everyone (cruise director, wait staff, customer service, etc) was a step below other Carnival cruises we had been on. They all did their job, but no one was really outstanding. Also there was just less activities than we were accustomed to on this cruise. We ended up staying in more often than not as a result because there was nothing of interest to us on the entertainment list. We tried booking the Carnival shore excursion from Cozumel to Chichen Itza via the flight, but it got canceled due to insufficient people. We were so disappointed and ended up going on the ferry/bus ride instead. We actually were comped this due to the leak in our room and our prior shore excursion being canceled.

Not too thrilled with the ship

Cabin Review

Aft-View Extended Balcony
Cabin 8M
We had a leak in our room from the access panel servicing our cabin and the neighboring cabin. Our cabin got completely soaked and it took them a while to dry it all out. I wasn't too bothered by it, but my wife was annoyed being directly above the dining room. We were a little disappointed as the engine noise on the balcony was a little more than we expected.
