The food quality is far less than Golden Corral, or even a second-rate McDonalds. This is my first Carnival cruise and although the ship was fairly clean, it really is the "party boat". Kids running everywhere, teens controlling the pool-hot tub area. It was hard to find a relaxing area. Only adult 21+ area is packed with adults trying to get away, so its even hard there to find a spot to relax. The food was the worst part though, hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken fingers and even the nice "dressed up" dinners severed the SAME EXACT meal as the buffet. It was a big let down.

Ship Tip

Go to the Pizza Pirate. We gave the pizza place the biggest tip since we ate there every day. it was the only good food on the ship.
