Overall, pleased with the cruise.  However, Carnivals dining room food leaves much to be desired.  We booked about 6 months in advance, we requested early seating for our party of 6.  We didn't receive early, your time or our entire groups seating.  It took 3 days and several tries to finally get our seating for 6 at 8:15 pm.  We requested early seating because one of our party is diabetic and she likes to be able to control when she eats on a regular time. 


The food was ok, but nothing to get excited about especially if you compare the food quality and variety to say Royal Caribbean Cruises.  The head waiter and asst. were wonderful, attentive and prompt.  The maître d was unmoved by our requests and very inattentive. 


This was our third Carnival Cruise, a disappointment from our others. 


The entertainment onboard was mediocre, however, the comedians were very good.

Cabin / Stateroom
Nice cabin, directly behind the bridge. Still had a good view and could frequently see the ships officers which I liked.
