I enjoyed the cruise. I have always heard mediocre comments about Carnival Cruises. My room was nice and well maintained throughout the cruise. I enjoyed the shows I experienced, comedy and stage. The food was alright. I never had anything that blew me away like I have on prior cruises. I did enjoy the pastrami sandwich I got from room service but everything else was just alright or lacked a flavorful punch. I was able to do a direct comparison of the French Onion soup with Royal Caribbean's and it lacked the flavor that made me start having it since my first cruise on Royal Caribbean.
