Worst cruise ever...

I been on over 20 cruises and most of them have been on Carnival. This cruise was the most ghetto cruise ever. People were rude, didn't know how to wait in line for the buffet. Every time I turned around there was someone cutting in front and reaching over towards the buffet. Totally rude! Also, the food choices were very few and it seemed like they had the same thing everyday. The tables were not being cleaned off immediately on the Lido deck. The shows are all the same, once you seen one, you seen them all. VIP debarkation was a joke. They had all the self-assisted passengers get off first, which turned out to be about half of the 3,000 passengers on board. We had to wait an extra 2 1/2 hours to get off. What's the point of being VIP if your not getting treated as one. They should of let disabled people or in need of assistance off first, then VIP and afterwards the self-assisted. Carnival needs to start getting their act together or they are gonna start loosing a lot of business. My next cruise will definitely be with Holland America.

The only good thing about this ship was the Spa rooms and the Serenity Area.
