Embarking & Disembarking in NYC: Smooth and quick.
However trying to get to cabin was difficult due to many aft elevators tied up with luggage. Use the mid-ship or forward elevators.

Dining Rooms: Avoid the rear of the Paris Dining room due to vibrations of the engines below this area.

Cabins: Inside cabins are small. Get a cabin with a veranda.

Food: Good. Avoid filet mignon. Lobster not sweet. Scrambled eggs at breakfast bufffet not hot. Omlettee station a better choice.

Entertainment: Musical reviews are excellent. Magician is repetitive in his box acts.

On board: Although better marked than most ships,getting from place to place difficult because you can't tell which direction the ship is moving and not all elevators go to every location.

Waiters: Efficient and curteous but not engaging.

Pools: Water is ice-cold.

Cabin attendedants; Extremely efficient.

Ship: Renovations due shortly; Some worn spots, rusted exterior spots but overall in fine shape.

Conclusion : Had many misgivings about Carnival bnased on other revlews. But was pleasantly surprised. Give it an 8 rating.
