Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We were very dissatisfied with the cruise. The Lido deck food service was poorly arranged. At breakfast & lunch they did not open up both sides of the buffett--the lines were VERY long--1/2 hr or more in line before we got to the food. The quality of the food was poor-especially at breakfast-the eggs had no taste and the color was more white than yellow--the bacon was floating in grease-the ham was so dry and tough. Moving around the ship was difficult and confusing. Poor layout. The dining room service was great-the food slightly better quality. The room service was OK. The evening entertainment in the Fantasia Night Club was great. The Serinity Lounge was not large enough for the adults that needed to get away from the noise and confusion of the kids,loud music and craziness of the limited pool area. The attendant in the Serinity Lounge was great--not sure I think his name was Melvin-but a great personable person.
Ship Quality
OLD-Poor quality-Poor Maintenance-
Food and Dining
Staff at our table was fantastic-Table #360--Hussain was SUPER too.
Cabin / Stateroom
OLD-The bed had sags on both sides--we hardly slept for 3 nights-the internet stated we had a couch in our room---Yet NO COUCH! No decent chair to sit in-- Very small flat screen TV
Service and Staff
Fantasia evening entertainment was excelant
Children's Programs
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
We paid for 2 1/2 hrs excursion to Atlantis and only rec'd 1 hr.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Nassau, Bahamas
From a liabilty issue--the port is in poor condition-accidents waiting to happen-crumbled concrete-exposed conduit


RETIRE THIS SHIP--It will be a cold day in hell before we ever cruise Carnival again--Any ship---Especially after the Triumph situation. The CEO made time to go to the HEAT basketball game rather than show empathy for the Triumph situation! VERY POOR JUDGEMENT! Shows he really doesn't care.
