This was our first Carnival cruise. it just doesn't measure up to our experience on Royal Caribbean.  There were not very many activities planned each day. the food was OK.  I have been spoiled with Royal Caribbean so I guess I have high standards. This was the most we have ever paid for a cruise and it was one of the worst. :(  On a high note we loved New Orleans.

spent two days there. it was our first time so we asked lots of people for hints. Ride the cable car, a $3.00 24 hour pass was perfect for us and we rode and got on and off a lot. breakfast at Ruby Slipper. on there site they suggest an app for reservations use it. Lunch at Antoines was fantastic. it was $20.16 for a three course meal very southern and $0.25 martinis. take a walking tour at free walking we did the ghost one. it was fun and informative.
