  1. I'm a big Carnival fan, but my first impressions are, at best, meh. The ship is going to be CROWDED - there's simply no way around it with the passenger space ratio being what it is. And where have you gone, Havana Pool? A tiiiiiiiny pool on Deck 8, no hot tubs, but a heckuva lot more Havana cabins than on Vista class. The Havana area was the best part of my cruise on Horizon - after a tranquil, relaxing day hanging out around the Havana Pool, a trip up to the crowded, frantic, and noisy Lido deck for a Guy's burger made me want to skip the food and run for my life. The Neighborhoods....whoops....Zones look OK but they are definitely derivative. I don't really see anything here that makes me want to cruise on Mardi Gras instead of any number of other Carnival ships.
  2. Not quite. On all but the $25 minimum tables, player blackjack pays 6 to 5, not 3 to 2. This is a sucker's game - if you bet $10 and get a blackjack, you get paid $12, not $15. Got it? If you want to gamble on Carnival, play craps - $5 minimum, double odds, a fair game. If you want to play blackjack, you can't get anywhere near a fair game unless you're prepared to play $25 minimum.
