Destinations & Excursions Were great - but The Ship Experience - NOT SO MUCH

Thank you for leaving this review.  We understand what you mean when talking about cake with cheese-like flavor because we notice that a lot with desserts and dishes that we are used to being prepared in a certain way.  For instance, we consider NY-style to be the standard cheesecake. On cruise ships, recipes are interpreted from a multi-national perspective so we are never really sure what dish is going to be served unless it clearly states "Maine lobster" or in the case of desserts "NY-style cheese cake".

Sorry to read that the cruise did not live up to your expectations.  I hope that your next cruise goes smoother for you. It was nice to read that you enjoyed your ports of call.

I really am not trying to be mean, but at the same time I am very straightforward and honest about things from my perspective.  We love cruising, but this particular cruise had it's not-so-glorious aspects that detracted from the experience as a whole.  As far as the food is concerned...  these companies know they are loading passengers at an American port and are therefore boarding Americans (for the most part).  I honestly feel that Carnival (in particular) cuts every possible corner where the food is concerned, especially the buffet fare.  We really have to try all kinds of stuff to find anything that we really can say we enjoy.  Because most of the time, even something we would normally be familiar with doesn't even come close to tasting like it should.

I was one one of her sister ships the Glory,  it is similar lay out to the old Fantasy class ships but not as good at keeping the smoke inside just the Casino.
