Carnival never again!

Sail Date: June 02, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

This is our third cruise (first on Carnival). And we were let down from the very beginning. The food was less than good, the staff seemed miserable, and the shows were not spaced out properly (they were also less than acceptable). The Elegant nights were a joke!
Ship Quality
seemed to be updated, only plus to this cruise
Food and Dining
Same food every night! Dessertswere not edible. Was that really cheesecake or flan?
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
The comics were horrible, the karaoke was a bore. Seemed like Carnival provided us with opportunities to self entertain.They did not provide god entertainment!
Children's Programs
The program was closed every time we tried to utilize it. It was open at 7pm when the family shows started...poor planning!
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions


Carnival closes the buffets just as everyone is returning to the ship from the islands. This causes the lines for the grill and pizza to be an hour long. Mongolian and burritos is only open for short periods, Usually when you are on an excursion. Again...poor planning!
