Went on a family cruise to Ensenada and I must tell you that the ship was a complete and utter disappointment as it is out-dated, dirty and smells awful. There is absolutely nothing acceptable about either the appearance of the ship or the manner in which guests are treated. The breakfast hall is operated by people who have absolutely zero common sense and seem to not be able to understand that parties traveling together would like to dine together. Our plan was not to get off at the port in Encinada and just enjoy a relaxing day on the ship, however it seemed almost impossible to spend any more time on the ship and we all got off. The cocktail service was deceptive as they offer horrible mixed drinks that appear to be complimentary but once you accept they ask for a room key, so as a result my borther-in -law was forced to pay for drinks for a lady that wasnt in our group.

I am surprised that Carvnival would keep such an old, out-dated ship on its fleet! The overall feel of the ship...a floating bad casino from the 1970s with a "spring break" crowd! Dirty bathrooms, disgusting pool and clumsy waiters(i had a waiter spill his tray on me).

I will be posting this on review sites because this did not fit the image that Carnival portrays on advertisements.
