How is the entertainment on their 3.5 star ships? I like alot going on the pool deck. Do the 3rd and 4th person pay 1/2 price like Royal Caribbean?

try Cruise Critic - Cruises, Cruise Reviews, Cruise Lines and go to the forum boards from their home page. There is a TON of info on all the cruiselines there and you can ask whatever questions you want. Good luck!

I went on one a 3.5 star Carnival cruise. I was thoroughly disappointed. During the entire cruise, the pool was drained. Passengers repeatedly asked when it would be filled, and each day were told "tomorrow." Finally on the next to last day they admitted it would not be filled. As a result, the kiddie pool, which was tiny, wound up being congested and nasty. The entertainment was boring or silly--a lot of second rate (if that) stuff. The food was okay, not great. I will never go on another Carnival cruise again.

The pool was operating on my cruise to Alaska a few weeks ago. I've never cared for what passes for entertainment on their vessels.

We're leaving on our 5th Carnival cruise in a few weeks. We are quite happy with this line and look forward to many more cruises with them.

BTW, we are regular participants on Cruise Critic too. It's a very educational site for cruisers.

I have always sailed on RCCL and found that line good. Carnival was more a party ship.

Anyway, I did like rccl, and the little sun viking, small, and long gone-it got you into the best ports, and was a great ship!
