Review Summary

The food selection was huge.  They did an especially nice job in the Lido Marketplace.  Always go aft towards Tides pool.  Way less crowded.  BIG complaint is that they never once mentioned local time.  We missed a private excursion and lost a bunch of money due to this.  RC and NCL are good about this, but Carnival is not.
