The smell of sewage was overwhelming. I had a balcony room and interior room across the hall on the lido deck. The smell in the hallway after you got of the elevator would knock you down. The interior room also had a strong smell of sewage. We also had a terrible experience with the my time dining. We brought our 11 month old and 4 year old daughters, and it took 20 minutes to get a high chair. It took an additional 20 minutes to get an appetizer. 40 minutes later with a 11 month old did not go very well. The second night we ended up leaving dinner service because it took so long to receive our food.

Food was OK at best. Not much else to say. Dining rooms are showing there age. Not renovated and dirty with stains all over the ceiling. Not sure if it was from sewage leaks from when the ship broke down.

It was a 1970's shade of peach, and the original decor that has been in it since the ship was built. It also had a lovely old school TV. No flat screens here. The 115 million that was spent on renovations went where?? Oh yea carpet. But wait if you stay in room 9248 the sewage flooded, so the carpet in that room isn't new anymore

Progresso is the worst place to go unless you like feeling unsafe, eating from places that have no regulations and being hassled to buy something every five minutes. STAY ON THE SHIP!!!!!!!!

This will be the last time I will travel with carnival. The whole trip was a bust. Save your money on this ship, because the renovations that were made you can only see in a couple of places. They did just enough to get the ship back in the water and start making money. They also didn't get the sewage fixed as well. I hope I have convinced one person to save their money because this was the worst vacation I have ever had.
