Review summary

Our family had high hope for this vacation. We save each year to get together for this family trip. We normally cruise with Royal or Norwegian but thought we would try Carnival. While the best food in ship was the taco bar and guys, the hours for both were limited. The buffet was nothing like any of the other cruises we have been on and the service seemed more of a burden than anything. We did appreciate the wait staff and our room stu and the effort they made to make us feel welcome.

Go for destinations only because the cruise experience itself is much better on other lines.
