Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
So I really wanted to LOVE my experience....but sadly, that was not the case..boarded in Port Canaveral which in itself , was confusing as heck (parking)..once you got to the gate, it was a breeze..plenty of smiling, helpful navigators all around..the ship is old..she is still in good shape for the most part, but I did have a water droplet drop on the top of my head while waiting for the elevators..tiles were missing, so apparently they know about it..the most disappointing of all was the FOOD!! The food was cold from Guy's Burgers and the fries were cooked way to early and allowed to sit in their grease..the mushrooms were always burnt and greasy..the staff in the main dining room, Golden, were superb BUT the FOOD was awful..no taste whatsoever! I ordered multiple items hoping to get something good but no. This was every night. Even the Dr. Seuss bkfst..food was not good at all..presentation/show was..waste of money on food..no one ate it..not even the kids. BBQ was WAY too salty which says a lot because ppl in my group likes salt. I liked the Blue Iguana so had to eat there all the time..tacos, burritos, etc. The Diamond's Steakhouse was on point except I didn't like seeing the dirty dish station parked in front of another guest's table..Bkfst on the Lido last day was quick and good though. The takeaway: Carnival has downgraded the food in the more popular restaurants while trying to cut costs. If you want a good steak, do not go to the Main dining room..go to the Steakhouse. The Wok was ok but limited choice of meats but still no taste and 30 min or more wait in line.

They enjoyed Club Ocean and the Dr. Seuss bkfst..although some others missed it because it is not on the Hub app or on the FunTimes..you have to reserve at Guest Service or online

Camp Ocean

Kids loved it but closed at various times of the day and did not serve lunch every day..not consistent nor advertised that way.
