Overall we had a good time but it wasn’t what we had hoped for.

Embarkation was a little chaotic. Long lines and it didn’t seem like al of the staff at the port knew what they were supposed to be doing.

Food and Dining

I’m the past I have loved the food in the dining room on Carnival. This time not so much. More than one night I didn’t eat the food and then went somewhere else to grab something.

Guy's Pig & Anchor Smokehouse / Brewhouse

I wanted to love this place. But it was meh. They do have the best Bloody Mary onboard though.

Fortune Teller Bar

Favorite bar on the ship. The ONLY place that I was able to get a decent spicy drink.

Guy's Burger Joint

4 out of 5

Delicious as usual. I think the fries were frozen though, not cut like they used to be.
