First I’d like to start off with the good Dewa our steward was amazing , friendly and never forgot our names. He would check in to see if I needed any extra pillows. Sherwin John who was our server in Carnival dinning room was also great at remembering our names and what allergies I had. Let’s not forget he is also an amazing dancer. The rooms were nice and clean, bed was comfortable and the view amazing. The comedy shows , game shows and circus were great. I really enjoyed that karaoke was nice and hilarious at times.

Now for the things I didn’t like there isn’t water or ice stations on each floor. I was sick from day 1 . At first I thought it was the tiramisu. So I didn’t eat it again and stayed away from dairy based foods. 2 days later I became sick again after drinking from water from the 6 th deck water station. Ruined the rest of my night. Again I thought this was a fluke but on another floor I got water and immediately started having stomach cramps. I haven’t been able to keep down food since even after getting off the ship. They give you plastic cups to drink from. I understand they are trying to manage waste but the need better cups or glasses. Plastic holds bacteria. I should have known from day 1 that things wouldn’t be good. While waiting to sail away on the Lido deck our family sat and had some fish taco they were great. We asked for napkins and were handed old rags that look like something your See a mechanic using to wipe their hands. It was disgusting. I couldn’t get in any of the pools. If you wanted to get in a pool it would have to be before 830 am. The pools were filthy with a thick gray film of lotions, sunscreen and that was the adults only serenity pool. The lido deck pool was bombarded with kids in which I watched at least 3 children pee in the pool. One little boy just stood on the side of the pool and peed in it like it was his own personal toilet. While this was my first cruise I was with many pro cruiser who were also disappointed and got sick also. For these reason I will never do a Carnival Cruise again

Cabin Review

My cabin was a king size with deck on deck 5. The room was clean and our steward Dewa was amazing
