A floating ashtray of yuck! Crew were unidentifiable from the average scummy passenger rarely a uniform except for a name tag. The pool would have barely been of adequate size for 15 people let alone 2500. It was more of a cesspool than a swimming pool. If you are looking for floating seedy vagrant Vegas experience come aboard but don't forget your cigarettes (the whole boat smelled of smoke), your heavily inked physique, earlobe plugs, belly ring, inability to hold alcohol and ability to exhibit extreme PDA . Oh yes, and also your wallet because EVERYTHING including a diet coke, and a game of pac man will cost you extra. We should have clued in when upon boarding someone tossed the garnish from their drink onto the deck as they walked by and 2 hours later it still had not been cleaned up... just guessing that this would never happen on Disney.

Mediocre Vegas buffet.

The ship is not the only thing that is stale, overused and outdated. Every corner you turned they had some oversized bath towel with a creepy landscape scene on it being used for a photo background. Smoking is allowed at the main outside bar. The water slide appealed to those 8 and under. The shows were unremarkable, costumes were torn and worn out. Content was uninteresting.

WARNING WARNING WARNING steer clear of the public beach in Freeport ! Do rent scooters in Nassua they turn you loose and you can explore the whole city.

We enjoyed hanging out with our family and would have a great time anywhere. The people watching provided us with endless fodder and entertainment far better than ship offerings. Our waiter was nice, and our cabin staff was attentive. Carnival is definately a budget operaration that caters those with a Waffle House pallet. Next time we will definately pay more and go Disney or Silversea.
