Food (and cutback on guest hospitality) have definitely been cut back

Room Type: Suite

You can easily tell where Carnival is cutting back.  Food choices (buffet and specialty lines) were often understaffed and lacked the large amount of choices as in the past.  Our Dining room waiter (Alexjander from Montenegro was AWESOME) and cabin steward were great.  Not once could i get Pizza. It was NEVER stocked and 3 times I walked off the line.  Walked off the deli line 2 times, and each time went to the burrito/taco or burger lines.  Both of these two outside food locations were great.  Liquor continues to get more and more expensive.  What happened to the beer/wine package?  If it was reasonably priced, people wouldn't be sneaking stuff on!   Overall OK, but definitely not something that I would say was great.

Food and Dining
Loved our dining room waiter. Only gave middle reply because of the lack of staff/food on other lines
Service and Staff
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Can't understand WHY there is even a stop at Grand Turk...
Ship Quality
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Tendering to private island bad. Not enough tenders-too long waiting to get off and then back on
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice size, kept clean nice cabin steward


There is no place to hide from the sun. I love sun, but would love to see ships start to put out umbrellas or awnings around decks so you can be outdoors and out of the sun
