Chose for the itinerary and timing. The whole thing was pathetic. See other reviews about smell of sewage. Horrible lines for food all the time. One day in Key West it was boiling outside (we live in SW Florida and are used to it). But the line to get on the ship lasted 45 minutes. We are used to boarding Princess cruises efficiently. We were in line for an hour to board. Staff was rude and dismissive. It took our waiter 20 minutes to even show up the first night in the main dining room. We never saw our cabin steward--the only ask we have is for ice. He was the invisible man. The ship was written up (by Cruise Critic) as being recently refurbished. Where was that? It was tired. Carpet was old. I love that they have DIY soft serve. it would have made it palatable had someone from the wait staff had bothered to clean up the spills that were allowed to sit there for not one but over 4 hours. And on and on. . . Don't waste your time and money

Wouldn't sail again on Carnival if it was free
