IT WAS MY WIFE AND I'S FIRST CRUISE AND WE CHOOSE TO DO IT ON OUR 5 YEAR ANIVERSERY. WE ARE BOTH AROUND 40 AND WAS TOLD BY MANY TO EXPECT TO BE IMPRESSED. THE EVENING DINNER SET UP AND WAITER WAS THE ONLY THING REMOTELY IMPRESSIVE. THE FOOD WAS ON THE LOW SIDE OF TASTE TO SHONEY'S. MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT IMPRESSED WITH SHONEY'S. THE DESSERTS WERE BLAND AND I CAN EASILY GET RICHER TASTING AT WAL-MART. IMPRESSIVE, NO. MY WIFE WAS QUARANTEENED TO HER ROOM BECAUSE SHE GOT SICK (SHE DIDN'T HAVE A FEVER). SHE COULD NOT LEAVE THE BOAT WHEN WE REACHED OUR DESTINATION NOR DID ANY CHECK ON HER WHILE I LEFT THE BOAT. I RETURNED TO MAKE SURE SHE WAS OK. WE ARE CERTAIN THE WAY THE SICKNESS CAME ON AND LEFT AFTER SHE THREW UP BOTH WAYS IT WAS FOOD POISENING. WE ADDRESSED IT WITH CARNAVAL AND THE SAID THERE WERE NO SICKNESSES RELATIVE TO THE FOOD. WE SPOKE TO A DOCTOR ON BOARD AND HE GOT SICK AND SAID THAT HE HAD THE SAME THING. WE SPOKE TO CARNAVAL AND WE GOT A LETTER TODAY THAT BASICALLY SAID HERE IF 50 DOLLARS FOR YOUR TROUBLE. OUR CRUISE WAS RUINED. I THOUGHT THEY WOULD DO MORE THAN THAT.
THERE SHOWS WERE AS GOOD AS A THEME PARK. THERE WAS NOT MUCH TO BE IMPRESSED ABOUT.

YOU COULD TELL THE SHIP HAD BEEN OF AGE AND SHIP WAS A LITTLE SMALLER THAN EXPECTED.
