My cruise overall was good because we made it that way. If you can't enjoy a cruise something is wrong. I was disappointed in Carnival many times though. I have been with Carnival many times before and it was fine. I'll give some examples of the shortcomings. My security was in question a few times on this cruise and itΒ  NEVER had been before. We had 2 Medical Emergencies which is fine but there was something suspicious about that too. Buffet food was never hot.....Warm? Not really. Up charges in the dining rooms. Not much food available if you didn't eat in the dining rooms in the evenings. Lousy cruise directors. Now some positives..... Good ports of call. Good breakfasts. Good stateroom and service. Guys Burgers is wonderful. Good embarkation and debarkation. I guess the biggest concern for me was our safety

Cabin / Stateroom just what I paid for
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


Question your security.
