Sail Date: May 2022

We decided to go on this Cruise as a family ,nine of us went together, the ship was not what we expected there was not really much to do they did have some shows and things but for the most part while we were on the water it was boring they did offer a lot of food but the food in the dining room and in the buffet area honestly was kind of nasty some of it was good but a lot of it was not very good at all. We had to complain the first day cause our rooms were so hot the air conditioning wasn't working properly and none of the little refrigerators in the rooms work my husband is a diabetic and we had to keep calling for ice twice a day in order to keep his insulin cool the refrigerators did not work in any of our rooms. Of course it didn't help that it rained the whole entire time and the ship was rocking back and forth that is not the Carnivals fault that is the weather that was beyond their control, but my daughter her baby and her husband got really sick two and a half days before the cruise was over and after we disembarked they went to the doctor and all of them tested positive for covid,so needless to say our entire family is under quarantine right now and we have been unable to return to work. Disembarking in the Cayman Islands was total chaos and disembarking back when we got to our port in Tampa was a hell almost 2 hours just to be able to get off the ship and through customs very very disorganized we were the not the only ones complaining many people were.
