We purchased this cruise thru a great deal which I am glad we didnt pay full price. We wont be doing another Carnival cruise. We have cruised with P&O & Princess. We thought P&O was average but Carnival is worse. At least on P&O & Princess there were adult only areas. Our balcony suite was great & serviced well by Jose, he was very helpful & kind. BUT thats the highest compliment I can give. On Carnival even on the Serenity bar kids were going there, supposedly over 18 only. The staff do nothing to stop this. Couldnt believe the kids in the other bars after 11pm. So if you want somewhere to go for a quiet drink & chat with out kids turning up. Forget this cruiseline. The staff were pleasant but dont smile much. We dined at Lido only a couple of times food average. Truffles was better atmosphere thou twice at breakfast my husband & I had dark hair in our breakfast, we are fair. Predominantly the European waiters were rude clearing plates before finished meals & constantly leaning over while we were still eating. One waiter spilt soup over my husband as he was too concerned in getting us out of there. Luckly the food was never hot so he didnt get burnt. They constantly stuffed orders up, in the end you just gave up. The last straw for me was they stuffed up our duty free alcohol order the woman named Syliva was so rude, I was speechless. She couldnt have cared less. The cruise is very boring no adult events really its all for the kids. I would have put terrible but the shore excursions were great which had nothing to do with Carnival, except Noumea, its a dump, no shade waiting constantly for hop off hop on buses which never come every 15mins like they state. I nearly passed out with heat stroke & I was wearing a hat & drinking water. So if you want a cheap cruise with screaming rugrats & brats racing around unsupervised go for it. Otherwise steer clear. We are going back to Princess!

Only for families with kids
