This was our third or fourth Carnival Cruise and we see Carnival cutting corners. The quality of the food and food service was not nearly as good as on prior cruises. The entertainment was third rate. The only really entertaining evening was the juggler. We had seen the exact same show on our prior cruise on the glory and he was very entertaining. The rest of the entertainment was not so great. Even though this was a new ship, we found the cabins to be smaller than in our prior experience. I don't think that we will sail Carnival again.
Ship Quality
ship was new but smaller than we had expected
Food and Dining
The worst food experience we have ever had on all of our prior cruises
Cabin / Stateroom
felt smaller than on prior cruises
Service and Staff
stateroom stewards were good but dining staff not so good. On prior cruises we developed a very positive experience with our dining staff. This time was not so much. Our waiter did not engage with us at all. He asked us where we were from on the very last night of the cruise and made no prior attempts to know us
Except for the juggler, the rest of the entertainment was third rate
Children's Programs
My daughters went the first night and not at all after that
Onboard Activities
We found ourselves looking for things to do.
Destinations and Excursions
We picked Carnival and this cruise because of the ports, although weather prevented us from getting into one of the four stops
Miami, Florida
La Romana, Dominican Republic
Too poor.
Willemstad, Curacao
Oranjestad, Aruba
We likes Aruba a lot but the tour we picked turned out to be a dud. It was suppoed to include 90 minutes at the Beach and when we got there, the Beach was not great and they kicked us off the chairs that the tour guide told us we could purchase for the day. So we were sitting on the sand at a crumby beach
