We've sailed on 5 Carnival ships and each one was better than the one before. The rooms are more than adequate and always kept spotlessly clean by the stewards. The food is varied and tastefully presented even though they are feeding thousands. The hard working waiters and assistants are always pleasant and accommodating. The shows are really well done and very entertaining. The musicians in all the bars are very good. The decor might be a tad overdone but you can't say it's not stimulating. I had a negative comment about kids being out of control on our last cruise. I e-mailed Carnival and within 4 weeks they sent me an apology and news that they were looking into how that problem can be solved in the future. They even gave me a "perk" which I wasn't looking for but it was graciously accepted. What big company in America gives a hoot about its customers.anymore. I can't wait till my next Carnival cruise and if it's not to your liking, then go elsewhere.
