December 2014 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Western
This was my 6th Carnival cruise. Twice on the Holiday, once each on the Celebration, Jubilee and Conquest. All facets of the cruise have been deteriorating. Food and entertainment are not even close to what they offered in years past. Dining room staff and cabin stewards are still great. That's where the good service ends. If you want a drink while at a pool, go get it yourself, you'll get extremely tired of waiting on someone to take your order for it. If you want coffee with your breakfast at the buffet, first find a working coffee dispenser and try to get a table nearby. The Guest Services desk was always understaffed with a long line of passengers waiting. I always thought my NCL cruise didn't measure up to Carnival standards. This cruise didn't even compare favorably with the NCL cruise. I definitely won't ever be back on a Carnival ship.
