Love this ships layout! You can not get lost even if you tried! Turned around but not lost!! Lots of fun things to do on sea days..the first 3 sea days the comedy was the best experience we had ever had while cruising, then the comedy became just ok.. The center stage had some good shows as well..loved all the ports we went to but i wish we had more time & not arrive so early in puerto rico & grand turks..still trying to figure out what i thought of the food...madi gras is doing an injustice to guy fieri's flavor town.. Pig & anchor lunch was horrible!! Guy's hamburgers dry and either burnt or undercooked..they no longer serve the fresh cut fries..lido market was only good during lunch time..dinner was hit or miss both at lido & your time dinning..street beats was different each day some was tasty.. Some was an experience... Always go for a balcony on these larger ships as the interiors are the size of a small closet..watch your tips at the bar as the bar already has the tip on receipt if you are not paying attention you are tipping twice with each drink..guest services the worst..went 3 different times to guest services 1. We received cruise cash from family & friends but did not know it as we never received any information from carnival as we were celebrating our birthmoversary....we had to go to guest services as one of our friends asked if we received a gift card from them..there were actually several cruise cash for us & only found out when we went to ask about the gift card..never once apologized but told us yes there was cruise cash but they could not tell us from whom it came from... 2. Tiki bar t shirts there were none to purchase until next weeks cruise..went to guest services to ask where i could purchase them from & actually got scolded from the representative because they were out of stock! I knew they were out of stock i just wanted to know if there was some place else i could purchase!! 3. Went to guest services about the pig & anchor lunch & was told to wait to write about it in our review.. So be warned stay away from guest services!

Cabin Review

Interior Cabin 150sf...My Closet is bigger..One of us would have to leave the room while the other was dressing..NEVER EVER AGAIN will I do INTERIOR on these Larger Ships
