This cruise was disapointing for us as the food quality and quantity has diminished considerably.  The evening dining was very low in quality.  For exmple, the shrimp cocktail, which ued to be generous is now ridiculously tiny.  The lobster dinner also very small (we ordered the prime rib also to suplement it and were glad we did).  And, we are definatley not big eaters!   Some items on the menu are very poor in content too.  What happened Carnival?  Two very small frozen pre-cooked sausages and one one inch potato patty for breakfast...really?   And so many people dining in shorts and t's......the standard has slipped dismally.   The only redeeming fact on this trip was the wonderful staff service...everyone was polite and very helpful.  But sorry carnival I won't be taking this ship again......
