Review summaryThe ship was beautifully decorated. The spa staff and entertaining staff were amazing! Overall, the food experience was lacking quite a bit in my opinion. If i could change anything or give my advice i would say the food and drink staff needed to be more abundant. We had several less than desire fine dining experiences, which is typically one of our favorite features about a cruise. Also bar staff in the comedy club and serenity deck were few and far between. For this sized ship i believe a few more staff and this would have been a much better experience.
Food and Dining
Sapphire Dining Room
The staff were friendly enough. However our dining experience was less than par. First night i was served a baked potato and our server never came to offer any toppings so i was left literally with a dry potato, no butter, no toppings. I also had empty water several nights with nothing but a cup of ice to sip on once the water ran out. We ordered coffee one night and never received it. And the very last night i had a baked Alaska, which tasted great, however i had a piece of broken plate or other ceramic plate ware in my food. It cut the roof of my mouth. We quickly got up and left. I am not a hard person to please but i felt like this was a big downfall in the experience. Luckily we cruise often so we know that this experience is not common, however if this were our first cruise we would have been left to feel this as a big let down.
Needs a TON more space for the shows. We would arrive 30-45 minutes prior to show to only find standing room or to be shoved into a back corner with no view. Carnival needs to realize that these shows are one of the most popular after hours and needs to move into a larger area to accommodate. The comedians were fine, the area and bar staff were not great.

Good time, but if you sail for the food experience you may be a little disappointed.
