This being our 5th cruise (all with Carnival), we were able to notice the cutbacks, The American Table menu in the main dining room leaves something to be desired. My observation was that the fine food that previously was served to all was now perhaps in the Specialty restaurants. Also missed which were available before were LIVE bands for shows, VIFP party which included Gold, and the chocolates left by room stewards when they did turn down. We have already discussed choosing a different cruise line for our next trip because of different itineraries and we want to feel like we got a good value for our money.

We're always happy with our accomodations.

Navigation to terminal building is difficult since there are tons of containers in the area where you are driving. I still could not tell you where parking was located.

Jack's Shack worth the walk down the beach.

Two casinos within walking distance of the pier if you wish to gamble.
