Embarkation: the line went quicker than I thought it would, and check-in was easy
Cabin: bigger than i thought it would be, neat and clean, the balcony was very nice to have (I had low expectations)
Food: really good overall, but not as amazing as I thought it would be, I was shocked and VERY disappointed to find that 'all you can eat' shrimp buffets on the ship were NOwhere to be found...lobster night was the best, of course
Entertainment: the Vegas style shows were dated and cheesy, and with the exception the one piano bar (which was contemporary and lively thanks to the great pianist), the live piano music at various locations around the ship were old standards that NObody's heard of, including the octogenarians PLUS the piped in muzak throughout the ship was that of some bad adult contemporary radio station from the early 90s---NOT good. Overall, for a Carnival "Fun Ship", the music was old and sleepy.
Dining: good food for the most part, Great service
Public Areas: neat and clean with a relaxed and fun feeling environment. It was a huge relief to discover there was absolutely no pressure to participate in any games. The crew did a great job of rallying contestants or participants without imposing on anyone.
Disembarkation: effortless, really efficient
