Our Big Mistake
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Dining was another negative experience. Service at breakfast was horrendous. Baskets of bread and rolls were reused table to table. Most mornings, the food was cold when it arrived. My husband actually had to get up and get his own coffee one morning. One waiter at breakfast does deserve commendation. His name was Stanimir. He was wonderful-friendly, efficient, and fast. Our dinner staff was also very good. I think her name was Denista. Her assistants were also very good but I have misplaced their names. The food was not. Portions were small and it was usually only warm when served.Although our room was well kept, our original steward was replaced 2 days into the cruise. Again another weak excuse was given that he had gone ashore. But we were at sea for 2 days! How did he get ashore? We also tried to be conservative as the card suggested in the bathroom. We hung our towels every morning, with this card attached. And every day, our towels were taken and replaced. Why bother with the cards?
The main shows with the dancers and singers were great. They were colorful and entertaining. The fill in acts, however, were awful. A little better entertainment would have helped. And the atrium "singer"! Good gosh, who hired him? He tried to strum and sing every day but was terrible.
We were awayand at sea and that was nice. But we were again disappointed with Carnival and will probably never sail it again. Less
Cabin review: 8A6153 Balcony
Our cabin with a balcony was fine. The bed was excellent! The location was good. It was basically quiet. Although the weather did not cooperate, the balcony was very nice and a good size.Read All Balcony (8A) Reviews >>
