Review summary

Once again carnival was not up to par. I know they’re the “save some money” cruise line but they should still do their best.

Same stuff over and over

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Steward was great. Waitstaff underachievers. First night in dining room took over 1/2 hour for the server to even come to our table and once we got our food we never saw him again. Had to change seating for future dining nights. Waitstaff not the friendliest I’ve seen on ships before.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5

Ensenada, Mexico

Wine excursion- first winery was ok. Second winery was awful. Downtown shopping was dirty and annoying. Too many people in your face to buy their junk. Won’t go to Ensenada again
