We have sailed carnival many times but feel that they have really cut back. - boarding was fast and easy. Surprisingly fast. We were really confused though as you why we didn’t get our sail and sign cards before boarding. First time since that has changed and there was nothing to tell us that during the boarding process. - cheers program was well worth the cost based on menu prices on board. - While we like to stay near the elevators, I will not choose the primary elevators again. We could hear everything from lobby entertainment well into the night from our suite. Lesson learned. - Dinner. I was rather disappointed in the main dining room. The service was no where what it once was. Wait times were long, food was ok. Nothing special like I had become accustomed to. - Pool Staff at the adult only pool were great about keeping kids out. - Room. Our room itself was fine. We didn’t see our cabin steward until day 2 when they asked if we wanted morning OR evening service. I have always had both as a basic cruise standard. Our steward did do a great job the one time a day our room was done and U was fine with it, just surprised of the change. - The Alchemy Bar and staff was our favorite spot each evening. They did an amazing job with awesome cocktails.

Cabin Review

Ocean Suite

Clean overall, closet doors rattled terribly the entire trip. Balcony was smelly. Could hear the entertainment from the lobby wellvafter 11am.
