Never Again

Sail Date: January 2014
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Miami

I have one word for this Carnival cruise experience: MEDIOCRE. It was our first time taking a cruise and after reading plenty of reviews, Carnival didn't sound as bad we had heard. But boy was I wrong…

THE BAD-

- Room: We asked for a trundle bed for our son upon boarding and didn't get it set up until about 9pm. The room was dusty, phone was broken, the curtain was filled with holes and some metal parts in the bathroom were rusty. Whenever we would make an observation about the room to the cleaning person, he just kept making excuses rather than acknowledging our troubles.

- Food: The food was TERRIBLE! I have absolutely nothing good to say about it. The breakfast and lunch buffet were incredibly unappetizing, and the dinner was always cold and bland. The food by the pool was just greasy, unhealthy and uninspired. Even the simplest foods, like pancakes, were horrible. The only thing that saved us were the pizzas by the pool.

- Ambiance: Cheap More and cheesy with a touch of drunken people and very loud music.

- Ship: Old, dark and dated.

THE GOOD-

-Sunrise, sunsets and star watching…but that has nothing to do with Carnival. Less
