The embarkation and disembarkation were faster than any cruise we have taken but the meals were a disaster. We chose to eat 1 night in the "complimentary" Seven Seas dining room. My husband, son and daughter-in-law as well as our 2-15 year old granddaughters love seafood. The complimentary meal was $25 a plate for the lobster as well as $25 for crab. We were under the assumption that Alaska was prime for seafood but with 7 people wanting $25 per meal seafood we said "no thanks!" We have cruised Carnival 9 times so we will return to them as dining room meals including shrimp, lobster, and crab are included in our price for the cruise. Our other meals were eaten on the 11th floor in the open dining but salmon was served once in the entire time of this cruise.

Do not plan on eating Lobster or Crab unless you want to pay $25 a plate each meal for it! There are no seconds either as you will be charged $25+ each time you reorder the lobster or crab!
