This was my 4th cruise (3rd with Carnival). My first carnival cruise was in 2008, the next 2012 & the last 2017. I could tell a big difference with the service & quality of the food declining with each cruise. I feel lIke carnival charges less up front but with all the extra charges for every ltitle thing that it is actually more expensive than the Norwegian cruise that I took in 2015 that included so much more. The only thing that I liked better was that they played movies on the big screen every night, which gave us something that wasn't overly crowded to go or some cheesy dance performance. If you want a vacation that you can relax & sleep in your room, this vacation is for you.
