Where has the service gone

Sail Date: October 01, 2006

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We have cruised with Carnival before and were well pleased.
This time however we found the service and the "FUN SHIP"
atmosphere to be lacking. The dining staff in the dining room
acted like we were a bother they had to be asked repeatedly for
drinks and they seemed to get side tracked and forget we were
there. The food was just average it lacked flavor even though it
was presented nicely. Our room steward however was very attentive
and was always pleasant. Most of the rest of the crew acted like we
weren't there. One young lady on lido deck actually rolled her eyes
at us when we asked for some silverware for our table which we
had to bus ourself. The ports of call however made up for the lack on
the ship. St. Thomas was beautiful we spend a wonderful day touring
and shopping. San Juan surprised us we didin't expect the modern city
the old part was very interesting especially the old forts. Half moon Cay
is a wonderful beach we had a great day there. Over all we would think
twice before we cruised Carnival again.

Pros: The ports of call were wonderful especially st. Thomas
