A waste of money!
Destination: Western Caribbean
The food on this cruise was terrible. We talked to cruisers who had been on Carnival cruises before, and they said if it was not for pizza and burgers, they would have starved. The food was tasteless, and either over or under cooked. We ate twice at the Atlantic Dining room. I had prime rib that tasted like cardboard. The hostess at the Atlantic dining room seated us More where we did not want to sit, regardless of the dining room capacity. On night 3, after seating us in a corner, we got up and left and went to the buffet. The temp "hot" on the buffet was non-existent, and the selections were poor. We tried room service, but it was slow, and "hot" sandwiches were delivered cold and soggy.
We have been on 2 other Carnival cruises providing a basis for comparison. The ONLY saving grace on this cruise was our room steward, Henny, who sets an example for all room stewards! Not only was she conscientious in her role as room steward, she was understanding, compassionate and accommodating. One word best describes this carnival cruise - "ghetto" and will be our last Carnival cruise. Less
the suite was not worth the extra money, get a balcony room and save the money. the cabin had old, stained furniture, rust on the balcony, and a tub a person over 150lbs would not fit in
Port and Shore Excursions
The tour was very nice, with stops at the turtle farm, Tortuga rum outlet, and Hell. The driver tells you all about the island's history along the way.
Semi Submarine Tour
The tour was very nice, with clear water, lots of fish, and several ship wrecks
