6th time on carnival was not the charm!

Sail Date: April 10, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Being our 6th time traveling on Carnival, we knew what to expect.  We unfortunately, were extremely let down by our expectations.  Ship was extremely dirty to me and service at dinner was less than you would expect.   They constantly messed up our orders and kept on coming back to table telling us 1 more minute-  25 minutes later, we got food and again it was wrong.  The buffet was terrible.  We weren't offered the usual spread - and surprise, they no longer serve lunch in the dining room - as they call it brunch.  Kids were allowed within the casino and sitting to sit at the bars - when I say kids, I am talking around 6-12 years old.   I don't know how the parents allowed their children to be around the smoking and the gambling, but Carnival should not have allowed it.  Never saw the cruise director until the last day of the cruise getting off of the ship.   Overall, would not cruise Carnival again as they are definately lacking what they used to offer.
