Not the best cruise

Sail Date: April 04, 2015

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

This was our 14th cruise on Carnival and it was rather disappointing.  The dining room service was not good.  We were often the last table to be served, making us late for the theater show.  The shows were bizarre to say the least.  Instead of the wonderful dancing shows, we were "treated" to animation with live people who really didn't do much of anything on stage.  We only attended one show.  The live tropical music that used to welcome us has been replaced by a disc jockey playing music I can hear at home.  A first or second time cruiser might not miss some of these things but Carnival has changed and not for the better, in my opinion.  Since we have reached Platinum Status we will continue to cruise on Carnival, I only hope the next one is better.

Ship Quality
Nothing better or worse than the other Carnival ships.
Food and Dining
Food was good.
Service and Staff
Martin from Bulgaria waited on us for brunch on Easter Sunday and was very efficient and personable.
The Playlist performers were not very good. Nothing like the old Carnival dancers.
Onboard Activities
Would like more parties on deck.
Destinations and Excursions
We've been to all these ports so didn't take any excursions.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
We had previously taken the Everglades excursion on a previous cruise and it was very good.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
I would like an excursion that spent time on the French side of the island.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Great shopping.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
This is a great port but the ships never stay long enough.
Grand Turk Island
A very nice beach with lounge chairs, sun and shade, but you need to grab on right away. The beach is right next to the ship.


The ship was fine. We had a balcony room and loved it. Our room steward, Augus was very good.
