Typical Carnival. Nothing fancy but consistent.

El Mojito Wine Bar

5 out of 5

Best service and best liquor options on the ship. Also only bar with Blue Cheese olives for martinis

Our House Sports Bar

2 out of 5

Carnival needs to catch up with other cruise lines and satellite TV options for sporting events. Stanley Cup Finals could not be shown and only 2 ESPN channels are available for sports.
