Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Our dining room experiences were all bad. I have cruised before, although not with Carnival. The first meal - jumbo shrimp coctail ( 4 very small), steak (tough) tilapia (overcooked) cheesecake (3 at the table ordered and all agreed it was horrible). The last 2 dinners we all decided it was safer to go with appetizers. Tomato/mozzerella salad, cold strawberry soup, melon/procuitto, and aspargus soup was excellent. Chocolate melting cake was perfect the once, overcooked the second. The staff rushed us thru our meal. We were never told we could order more item and never asked if we would like more.
