5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 28, 2014
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: E2
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The staff is the best part of the cruise.  The ship is showing signs of wear and the days of constant sales (photos, junk, future cruises, credit cards) is rather bothersome.  Did the Shopping and Rodeo in Merida, the guide quite good, rest of excursion not so much.  Carnival has something to offer but expect a lot of young families and rather average food, Carnival does everything by bean counting so everything is that grey Ok with small bits of color.  Hated that they have started adding tips to bar tabs and other things across the ship, not so much a money thing with me, just insulting, strange thing is I tip well for good service and they will charge you 15% on bar receipts, basically this is a way to raise cruise price with smoke and mirrors.
