This was the first Carnival Ship to sail and the experience was great. The ONLY issue that we had was the lack of tablecloths in the main dinning rooms. The bare brown tables looked very cheap and tacky without the clean white tablecloths. The biggest issue with the missing tablecloths was that the drink glasses on the table would sweat and the water caused the glasses to slide across the table creating a hazard situation. Also the excess unabsorbed water on the table mixed with bread and food crumbs to make a huge mess. CARNIVAL please bring back the tablecloths!!!
Other than that one issue the cruise was great. The crew were so happy to be back at work and the passengers were all happy to be on board. The service was excellent and the food was great. We had a great time and we would recommend it to those who are ready to sail. Galveston is a great port to sail from. They seem to be organized and they have the new protocols down pretty well.
