We have cruised Carnival several times before, but this cruise was different. The hot dishes at the buffet were mediocre and often cold, Same for the entrees in the Washington Dining Room.  Many of the dishes seemed strangely prepared.and unappetizing. First time that has ever happened to us on a cruise.


We could skip going to Cozumel and Belize but the port stops in Honduras and Costa Maya were excellent.


The ship left Port Canaveral three hours late. Rather than thinking about passengers and the trip they paid for, Carnival delayed the ship so they could load more supplies for the Valor's up coming dry dock.

The Serenity Deck is a very comfortable spot on the boat for adults
