This cruise was not up to our expectations. Lines were long at the buffets. Cabin service was adequate but not impressive. Food. especially breakfast, was not very good. Even some of the wait staff at breakfast were much less than friendly. 


Casino was okay but odds are definitely lower than a Vegas casino. One blackjack dealer was particularly offensive in her smugness. Other were very personable. I will probably not play blackjack on Carnival until they get rid of those abhorrent reshuffle machines. 


There were not as many activities as usual such as trivia contests. I am not sure i even met anyone on the cruise directors staff except him.


There were some good points of note. Embarkation and debarkation were very smooth and efficient. Kudos to the ground support folks.



Cabin / Stateroom
Perhaps the online registration could include a place to request things like extension cords for travelers who use C-pap machines.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Onboard Activities
I like Karaoke but since I was in the late seating for dinner i missed both nights. Had to eat and see the show. Maybe these could be scheduled to accommodate both seating.
Shows in the evening were terrific. Really enjoyed those.
