Review SummaryThe ship was not luxurious at all. The cruise director, Josh, was just interested in taking money from the guests. The bingo game costs me $20. He called TEN numbers and someone won. That was it. There had to be 100 people in the room, and it lasted a total of 3 minutes. The dancing on the lido deck was fun, but they only had that going for the first night. That was super fun and a definite highlight. The comedian was HORRIBLE and we walked out mid-show.
The food was even worse than the entertainment. I felt like we were in a cattle call. Every meal, we had to wait 45 minutes in a line. There were people coughing, little kids serving themselves and sticking their hands in the food touching everything. I was so grossed out. The eggs in the morning were powdered and tasted HORRENDOUS. WE only ate breakfast for one meal and skipped the other-it wasnt worth it. YUK. The food was ok. Nothing special. I could have eaten hamburgers, hotdogs, and pizza at home. They didnt have any decorations, the cups for the free lemonade, water, or ice tea were always gone, and the wait staff was rude.
The casino was FULL OF SMOKE. IF you want to sit in the lounge to listen to music, you would come out of there smelling like smoke. These people chain smoked while they lost tons of money in the casino. They dont let you cash out money-it goes onto your room card. The people walk around and asked us if we wanted a drink literally every 4 minutes! By the time 1 hour passed, I just ignored them.
I felt like this was a second class cruise. The best part was people watching-there were some drunk folks on there that were hysterical. I will NEVER go on a carnival cruise again. Save your money and pay a bit more for a cruise with better entertainment, better food, and less peddling of photos/drinks/future cruises.
