Never again on Carnival!

Sail Date: May 23, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The staff could not have been any better.  But, we felt like we were on the QVC shopping network from the time we got on till the time we got off.  There was no enforcement of dress codes for the one dress up night.  We went expecting a nice evening and they were letting in people with shorts and ball caps.  For all those that wanted dress up it was disapointing! 

The buffet was worse than any I had ever seen on a ship.  very few choices and even fewer hand sanitizing stations.  When you did find one it was empty.

Information for the tenders on Gd Cayman was very disorganized.

We purchased the bubbles package and the only place you could get a cola was at the bar.  It was not a place where children should be waiting for a drink.  They didn't open the bars till 10 so if you wanted a cola or a bubble you couldn't get one!
