The cruise was really ok.  Not bad, not great.  Was disappointed that one of our ports were changed from Isla Roatan to Key West due to a medical emergency onboard.  Otherwise, everything is as expected.  Did have a little more fun in Carnival Dream two years ago.  Not sure if it was due to the cruise director or not, but was more engaged in the activities offered before.  The food quality in the buffet and main dining hall was so so.  The food in cucina del capitano was ok.  The food in prime steakhouse was excellent.  The best food onboard is probably Guy's Burger Joint.  Great burgers and they need to make this 24/7 instead of the pizza place.  Need to add more compelling shows.  Out of the 7 night cruise there is really only one good show to watch.  The others were not really entertaining.  The comedy shows in punchliner is probably the best shows onboard.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The 24 hours pizza was horrible. Long wait and burnt pizza with very little sauce. Need to make the Guy's burger joint 24 hours instead of this pizza place. Your time dining can be a mess especially during elegant night. Long waits and not so great service since the servers are harassed at this point.
