Cruiseline: Princess Cruises
Our family had a great time on the Liberty for our New Years cruise. We have done one other Carnival New Years Cruise on the Legend out of Tampa. And unfortunately there is no comparison. The cruise director, Felipe, on the Liberty, was one of the best we've had. And we done quite a few Carnival cruises. There was no one big thing wrong, just a bunch of little things. Carnival has changed the dining service in the main dining rooms to something called "American Table". I think it takes away from the "experience". We are not formal people, but we want a little "something something" extra in the dining room if we choose to use it. Its now become just a little step up from the Lido deck buffet. In fact, almost everything you get in the dining room is available on the buffet. The quality of the food is also lacking a little. And again I say we are not "fancy" people, just want what we have had in the past (since 1998) and its not there. There's no more chocolate on the bed at turn down service. There wasn't a VIP get together. There is no cruise desk that I could find nor any incentives for booking your next cruise. Like I said, just some subtle changes, but really not for the better. We are also cruisers on Princess line and think we will stick more with that. And by the way Carnival, since you and Princess are one in the same company, why can't the reward program be combined?
