I've done 7 cruises now and this was the worst. It was like a training ship. Food was adequate but cold and the soups were thin. The entertainment, shows, were adequate but very few and far apart. Guest desk staffed with at least one person who didn't seem to care. On shore guest counter attendant either misinformed or outright lying. Ship communications with passangers very sparse. They had movies and shows that weren't clearly announced. Changes were made in library hours without notice, etc., etc. Just a poor experience overall.

The staff overall was great. The room stewards and the restaurant waiters were terriffic. But other than that, we were dissappointed. I won't soon be going anywhere with Carnival.

Ship Tip

Use Lido deck for breakfast. Food was quick, good and hot. Restaurant breakfast was good but slow.
