Sail Date: May 2013
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

Plain and simple..Carnival will NOT be able to compete in NYC with the NCL Breakaway now here and the RCL Quantum of the Seas coming soon.

This ship was brought here to increase Carnival's share out of NYC. One would think they would have refurbished the least a little?. Although everything was clean, the ship looks worn and shabby. I mean c'mon least new carpets? !!!

The food in the Black Pearl rest was bad to average and was NEVER, EVER HOT..warm at best!!! And this occurred each night!!Better food could be had at a gas station!
The Pinnacle Steak house is excellent and although it's an up sell and should be great..the main dinning rooms MUST do better if Carnival is to survive.

Unfortunately, this cruise has solidified my opinion of Carnival as a low end ,cheap, no frills vacation. If NCL is The Waldorf Astoria..Carnival has now become worse than a cheap "short stay" motel.

I will never travel on Carnival again..NCL will be my More ship of choice out of NYC until I try the Quantum in 2015. should be ashamed. Less
