Used this cruise as a 'Honeymoon Cruise' until we can go on a longer one or go to the Keys.

Basically, everything was very nice.......getting on and off was a breeze. Food was good but nothing to write home about. Desserts......think they need a new pastry chief or he needs lessons. The cakes seemed to be too dense and heavy......except the Napoleons....which were GREAT! Sit down eating was nice, but not enough selections. Our server, John, was Fantastic and will request his section in December for the 3 day cruise we're taking.

There were lounge chair hogs, who would come out and 'reserve' 4 to 6 chairs in a row...no one was collecting their towels....as has been posted on other review sites. Plus...the pool is way too small as were the hot tubs, which were also hogged up but groups.

Night entertainment was really nice.....except walking the main deck....their were groups who would walk 5 abreast and think they owned the place. Had to bump a few out of my wife's way.....they were very inconsiderate.

All in all......we had a great time together.

Thanks for the great review - yes one observation we have of the Carnival cruises that we have done is that the pools are much smaller than other cruise lines. I guess they need more real estate for slides etc. I wish all the cruise lines would clamp down on chair hogs .... it's become an awful problem. Glad you enjoyed your cruise though .....
