Had a great time but...

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

the ship was beautiful, the service was excellent, the food delicious but the entertainment wasn't the best.  The singers and dancers were also great but the shows were the same ones from the last few times we been on Carnival.  Singing songs from the past to the present different decades each night.  The cruise director did a great job and his act, playing the fiddle for 10 min. was funtastic.

Two different comedians performed in a lounge which were funny and entertaining but they had a repeat of their routine on another night. A lot of trivia games which we like to attend. Now I can see why Carnival is somewhat cheaper than other cruise lines.

Our last day we had to dock at a cargo port because of weather we guessed. This was not their fault of course but they never announced the reason and we had to stay on board till about 6:00 till we got to Tampa port. They did feed us lunch and had more trivia games and music to entertain us.  We felt sorry for the people that were to get on after us.

We still had a great time which we always do cruising.
