Love trip out of New Orleans. Like two vacations in one. However, expected little from Carnival. I was completely wrong. The staff, the food, the spirit, the services were all excellent. I can honestly say that we did not have a negative experience in 7 days. While this is obviously not a luxury cruise, I could not ask for more for price/value. My girlfriend and I enjoyed our meals uniformly. the wait staff was friendly, attentive, alert and aimed to please us at all times, We ate dinner in the steakhouse and it was absolutely a great value and delicious. Our room was very comfortable, well appointed, clean and welcoming. The steward was always available and tried to make us comfortable at all times. The shore excursions were pretty typical and nothing special, but everything went as expected. I would definitely travel and recommend cruising with Carnival again, without hesitation.

Gave me a new perspective on Carnival
