11 Night Mexican Riviera (San Diego Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 12, 2011
Ship: Zaandam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Reviewed: 6 years ago

After returning from a Carnival cruise in the Caribbean we were quite disappointed. Three weeks previous we had been on a cruise with Carnival on the Freedom. No comparison. We thought we were upscaling(what a let down) In no way did this cruise hold a candle to the cruise on the Freedom. The ship is old and need lots of repairs, the food average, the crew less than customer aware, the moral of the crew seemed to be in the dumps. I could go on but if you havent caught on by now more words are going to help.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Toilet didnt work and the lighting in dressing area was very poor. After complaining to the staff we were approached by an officer in charge of the lido deck as the appetizer was being served and interviewed there on the spotwould have much nicer if he would have made arrangements for interview in private.
