The Carnivale buffet are was crowded and unorganized. Several times the employees did not refill the trays of food.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The dining room was excellent. However, the Carnivale buffet area would frequently have empty trays of food and several staff members would not make eye contact when we tried to ask for them to refill the trays.


3 out of 5
Activities were fun and plentiful. There was only 1 pool, which did not come near to being able to accommodate the number of guests on the cruise.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
The staff generally seemed to not care about customer service. This was true for the Carnivale staff, the excursion staff (where the same person actually told us two different things regarding an excursion, thereby losing credibility), and the personnel in guest services.

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Stateroom was very nice. Only improvement I would make would be a small refrigerator.
