Bonsai Sushi

This and tepanyaki have amazing food! The wait staff work both places at once so you may expect a little delay. But if you sit back and watch, they are working very hard and where else do you have to be?! πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ we are on vacation 😎

Honestly be happy to be on vacation! Carnival and the employees are just trying to comply with the ever changing covid rules and protocols. We are all human. Make the most of your time!
