Overall Member Rating
Destination: Western Caribbean
SPORTS OUTSIDE-Basketball,dodgeball,putt-putt,chess,track,ping-pong, were fantastic! It turned out to be to windy (the whole trip) & the rope walk had to be closed. Overall, A-
POOLS-clean, bizy (dah) & noisy (dah again, kids!!!). If you want some peace & quiet , look for it, it's there. A+
DRINKS-cold & plentiful, A+++++++++
COMEDY CLUB-"da BOMB", family early, adults late. I like the change of artist & I would make sure they do not duplicate a show, be professional, bring it! A++++++++
PIANO BAR-as long as a bunch of drunks don"t ask for the same old nasty song ( you know), it's good. I believe the artist needs to grab hold of the crowd when they get a little to vulgar, just me. Talent wise, A, managing the crowd, C-.
RED FROG PUB-it was 1/3 to 1/2 full at nights,but i was there every night & loving it!!! I think the musician, being in the back & not in sight of passer byer's, hurts tremendously. As far as i'm concern, the best entertainment venue i've seen on any cruise, A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
CASINO-I hate to lose, so i play $100 & leave it to the Wife. She likes it, B+
LIDO FOOD-ok, B-
STEAKHOUSE-they comped our meal (wife gambling a bunch). SUPERB MEALS ALL AROUND, get the cheesecake dude! A+++
CUCINA ITALIAN FOOD-above the lido deck, you get to it thru the buffet. FREE abbreviated menu for lunch, GO!!!!!!! Then at least once, pay the $12 or so pp to eat at dinner, WOW, MAGNIFICANT! A+++++++
OUTSIDE GRILL-ask where & when , just like at home baby! Burgers, dogs, chicken, etc... SWEET,A++++
DINING AT NIGHT-Loved every meal & had hot molted chocolate cake/ice cream every night ( get an extra scoop with it, trust me!). A+++++
PIZZA PLACE-needs more staff at night, especially late. I believe the food suffers because of the need to keep up with the orders. C-
KARAOKE-slow in the club, C+---great in the walking area, A-
SHOPPING-PLEASE, better t-shirts, Carnival clothes look like there geared for senior citizens only. D-
PICTURES-way better than it use to be, keep working on it. If only we could observe & order from our rooms, yeah, that's the ticket! B-
CHILDRENS CLUBS-over the years they have improved BIG TIME! B+
SHORE EXCURSIONS-some you win , some you lose, but overall, B-
EM & DISBARKING- 1 word, thousands! So, chill, A-
I will leave you with this--5% will never be happy, 5% will always find something to complain about, so CARNIVAL keep up the good work, us 90% are ready to rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
