I gave it 5 stars because as always had a great time. The food was awesome especially Cuccina de Capitano the Italian pay restaurant. Best 15 bucks I have spent in some time. Wonderful. Crew was fantastic including my room steward Anthony and Tihomir our waiter in the main dining room. Ask for him if you go. Cabin was good size with biggest shower ive ever seen on a cruise ship. iEntertainment was 1st rate especially the Housband thet played in Ocen plaza nightly. Great talent and really personable guys and women. Serenity deck pool with the waterfall was fun. Unforunatly the weather was windy and a bit rough for most of the cruise so ropes course and slides were closed for most of it which was understandable. Casino was large and smoke wasnt to bad. I do have to say the Punchliner club and Liquid lounge were not enlarged with the remodel to the sunshine. They are not really big enough for the 4000 plus people onboard. Also where the pictures are,is a very narrow space. Finally the 1st 3 days yiu had to get up very early to get a deck chair or hottub space. After the 1st few days the carnival people removed towels if noone sat in them for 20 minutes. Again had a great time. Mikey is a great Cruise director and Nicky for me is a cruise director in waitinh.

Great Time; not my favorite ship
