We have cruised other Carnival ships, but nothing as bad as this. Toilet stopped working for several days. Public areas smelled of sewerage. My GoPro was stolen, and when I reported it security stripped our room (mind you this was around midnight as well). My wife broke her finger on a shore excursion, and we caught both COVID and Influenza A. Our last meal in cabin isolation was a single piece of dry toast. We were the last to be let off the ship after being diagnosed with COVID, but after some pretense of isolating us, we were let out into the general community to get into public transport with everyone else. No attempt by Carnival to address our concerns.

Generally, a thousand little things were not as good as cruising on Spirit pre-COVID. The experience feels like they are doing everything as cheap as they can and gouging for additional spend wherever possible.
