After experiencing many cruises on other lines including the Carnival Valor in the past, I can honestly say never again on Carnival.

The ship is beautiful but designed poorly for access to other areas. In public areas hallways jammed because they are narrow for people going in opposite directions and the fact photos are displayed so people stop to look and it stops the flow. I understand photo sales are a big part of the cruise lines income but they are creating an unnecessary hazard as far as being able to get around.So many photographers also was a pain.

Food lines unbearable and long. On days at sea, crowds at pools, hard to find lounges even in other parts of ship. DJ's music while not my taste ridiculously blasting. Dining room slow and inefficient altho staff very pleasant and friendly.and overworked. Didnt realize it was Captain's dinner till saw next day photos in frame that that so. People going to dining room in evening dressed like slobs, ripped shorts ,flip flops etc.

Felt like overall we were a herd of animals moving around ship.

Cabin steward very good and generally felt staff was lovely.

Shows in the Encore room were OK,dancers young and energetic, could have had better lead singers Jaime, cruise director works hard and is super pleasant and affable as was Damir, the matrei Dee in the dining room. The only good thing about Carnival I can sale is boarding and deembarking was orderly and a breeze.

Adequate,some meals not good.like the filet migon dinner and roast turkey-sent back both. Eggs always cold, buffet items not even warm.

Good-we were in 11262-kept clean and staightened out

Just went to shows

thought excursions were expensive for the amount of time on shore-we didn't participate, did our own thing cheaper privately

I think I did above, Would never travel on a large ship again, prefer more elegance andand personal attention, fewer people. Have been on Celebrity Soltice and it was more gnteel then this experience. This is a cruise for people who don't care for service.
