Review Summary1. When we booked, we were told that "non-alcoholic" beverages were FREE...
NOT SO! Soft carbonated drinks were $2.00. Only "free" drinks were ice tea and lemonade which tasted AWFUL!
2. We were told that ALL staterooms were NON-SMOKING....
We had cigarette smoke coming into our stateroom all night, EVERY night! So bad that we had to place a damp towel in front of the door (which helped only slightly). We woke up numerous times with headaches and stopped up noses from the awful smoke! We complained to our stuwart but he only said he'd "look into it". Later we were told that no one appeared to be smoking anywhere and that was all. The smoke smell continued.
3. The breakfast and lunch food in the Lido was very bad. Food was extremely greasy, tasteless and breads were stale.
4. Because we DID NOT purchase any shore excursions, we were told we HAD to pick up our 7 year old grandson from the Carnival Club for lunch between 12:00 and 1:00 p.m. therefore, cutting short our time in Freeport and Nassau.
On the other hand, the service by the waiters, stewarts and other staff was superb. Their professionalism, friendliness and cleanliness were beyond reproach. They ALL did a fantastic job of keeping the ship extremely clean.

Go to the Fantasia dining room for breakfast & lunch. Their food was great and NOT greasy like the Lido.
