I would not chose Carnival again due to the overall poor quality of the food and the lack of a proper swimming pool that an adulat can use to swim in.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
There were several appitizers that were not good. Several deserts were of poor quality. Three of hte manin courses I had were terrible. One night we orderd Mahi Mahi -- it was overcooked, dry and a shame that the chef made such a mess out of what normally is a delicious fish entry. Two steaks we had were tough, difficult to cut even with a steak knife, and very chewy. One was orderd medium ratre and served well done. The Cornish Game Hen was terrible. The coffee was so so. However the breakfasts were all very good.and the main entires of pasta were overall OK.

The swimming pool was not at all what we expected. It was very small and in addition divided into two sections which made it impossible for us to swim in it. Basically it was no more than a wading pool. Very disappointing!!

Got ripped off by one merchant. Found the sidewalks and street dirty with bird droppings and not impressed with this city
