Overall our cruise was an excellent experience and carnival did a fabulous job! Embarking and disembarking were both handled quickly, smoothly and efficiently. our room with a balcony was fabulous and our steward did a great job everyday of cleaning up after us and leaving us really cool towel animals. The drinks were expensive and the drink servers were a little pushy and they were EVERYWHERE, but i guess that's to be expected. There was good food all day everyday, and the dining room had the best food. the seminars and classes and even arts and crafts were fun. my husband loved the comedians, he saw all their shows, the PG and the R rated ones.

The food supplied at room service was terrible! we tried it 2ce and both times the food was cold and poorly prepared.

The food on the lido deck (buffet) was pretty good, not great. The layout of the buffet was inefficient and it was always crowded, most of the time it was difficult to find an open table.

The food and service in the dining room were both excellent! There were always plenty of choices and everything we had was delicious! We even each had 2 entrees one night, prime rib AND lobster!

stateroom was fabulous and roomy and the balcony was beautiful! room 4215. the room steward was very pleasant and attentive and did our room up nice every day.

we liked the bingo and the arts and crafts, and the jewelry seminars. my husband liked the drink making contest. I loved the spa!! Victoria did a fabulous job of relaxing me with a wonderful massage!!

skagway - dont miss the glacier point wilderness safari. speedboat followed by short bus trip followed by short hike followed by canoe trip to the glacier. it was all beautiful and the guides were terrific!

the whole trip was wonderful and we can't wait to do another one!!
