It was difficult to navigate the ship with limited direction, very few signs, some staff could assist others didn’t have a clue. Housekeeping staff was awesome. We paid for excursions, although the money spent for the benefits received was severely overpriced. No guidance was provided on what to do, where to go or how to get there. Our evening dinners were great.. there we a few oddities with the proteins on the menu on what you thought you were expecting versus what was actually served. Chalk it up to American cuisine and what others believe it to be. All in all I would rate the service staff outstanding. There needs to be a “1st time cruisers” class on how to get the most out of your cruise. We bought “faster to the fun” option. Only thing it got us, was on the boat quicker, no benefit to any excursion and didn’t help with debarking the ship as we were promoted through the line to get off the boat and out the door with no mention on when we we to get our bags, as they had been picked up earlier the night before, needless to say, if you don’t have them in hand before exiting customs, you’ll have to wait at least ‘3’ hours to get them, after everyone else has left the ship, gone through customs and are well on their way home. The note we recurved the night before told us what to do to get off the boat, but no additional mention, of what to do when you get to the terminal.. We don’t travel internationally very often, so we were oblivious as to what was expected. (It always helps to know how to Stop before pressing the gas). Will we cruise Carnival again? Maybe? Did we have a good time? Mostly. Was the drink package worth it? Absolutely Was the excursion worth the cost? Nope Were the meals good? Mostly Was “Faster to the Fun” worth the cost? Don’t feel so.

Fun although somewhat disappointed

Cabin was adequate, bathroom a little small, couldn’t get the room as cool as we’d like.
