so so food. I'd rather butter than spread and a better cooking oil so it enhances the flavor rather than coat the roof of my mouth. Oh and what about some deserts with sugar instead of sweetner.
Only two good shows. Who wants to see people on the cruise entertain by doing magic tricks or tell jokes. Selling shows during the day but no entertainment.
Poolside games for the very very young crowd.
Lots of dirty dishes of uneaten food and drink glasses all over the decks especially near the pool and chaise lounges, if you could find an empty one.
I think Carnival has gone downhill and is trying to save money by lower standards and embracing the young who love to get wasted.
I believe you get what you pay for so in the future, i'll just have to pay more.............
Ship Quality
Large movie screen needs repair. Too many holes in it.

Key West is a lot of fun and tours were ok but a lot of money.

Key West, Florida
A fun place. Have a drink in one of the bars and go into the $5--- $5 stores. love the hats and coverups.
George Town, Grand Cayman
toured the old estates and enjoyed it a lot.
