No Longer "The Funship"

We have taken about 14 cruises with Carnival.  Obviously, we have felt that it was a good value for the money.  This cruise, however, was a bit of a letdown.  They have really cut corners with regard to things to do on the ship, as well as cutting staff.  The staff is still very friendly and helpful, but they are many times overwhelmed and can no longer meet the same high standards of service.  It is not the staff's fault. The daily itinerary was boring and most people were just sitting around all day.  They have changed the quality of their shows and bands.  A production show in the evening had only 7 people with marginal talents.  Most of the bars remained closed the entire 7 days.  The layout of this ship and the décor was the worst of any ship we have been on.  The stateroom hallways were constantly littered with room-service dishes and laundry.  Sadly, we have decided that it may be time  to stick with some of the other cruise lines.  We have had very good experiences with Royal Caribbean and with Princess.  I guess it's true that "you get what you pay for."
