This was out 4th time on carnival and we were very happy with the variety of foods but found that most of the food, especially the meat dishes and soups were very salty. We always enjoy listening to the Philipino band that plays in the swing lounge but the only problem was that they played the same songs everytime they performed and did not seem to have much new songs and variety. The Caribbean band was excellent. The decor of the ship was beautiful and we loved how the lights changed colours in the lobby. Our stateroom was very noisy with loud engine sounds (avoid a room on the front of the ship on the riviera deck if you can). Overall the ship was kept very clean and the service was fine.
Food was too SALTY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sail Date: April 01, 2009
Pros: The caribbean band
Cons: the salty food and the voice of the lady that sings with the piano player in the lobby (very annoying!!!!!)
