This was our 22nd cruise with carnival doing both carnival America and Australia..
Have to say besides have our family on board for there first cruise it was just not the same Carnival have cut right back with staff and they work there butts off to try to please ..
But Carnival really need to get there act together we have throughly enjoyed each and every cruise except for this one...
The buffet food was again average and not worth the visit but barrito bar, guys burgers , salad and sandwich bar was great.
You can always find a little something until dinner in the MDR
There was a really bad smell of grease in the casino when you walked though from the red frog pub it was to be looked into a few times but nothing was done it was sickening disgusting smell that was there the whole of the trip.
We ended up going to the bars for a drink as we couldn’t find a waiter it most of the time was hopeless and just gave up .
The penny pinching that Carnival are doing by not enough staff to simple things by not even supplying a pen to fill out a form is only little things but obvious and annoying.
We are Diamond and have two long cruises booked for sept, and March but considering canceling and checking out a different cruise line most our owned by carnival but hopefully haven’t gone down the same road it’s not that we didn’t enjoy we loved being with the family which made the cruise ..
The islands were lovely as usual Mare, isle of pines , New Caledonia would recommend for first times cruise buddies however maybe with another cruise line would love to stay with Carnival but after the last cruise were not so sure ...
