My wife and I have been taking cruises for over 12 years now, mostly with Carnival. Over the years, we have noticed the quality in nearly all areas has declined to a level where we will never take a Carnival cruise again. The most disappointing is the food quality and variety. The menu item choices have been greatly reduced. Food quality, epically the imitation eggs and rubbery bacon were enough for one to lose their appetite. The coffee, (when the machines were working) is harsh and the water has a horrid taste. The waffles were hard as bricks. No whole milk of any kind was available. Meat quality across the board is very poor unless you enjoy chewing on it for an extended period of time.
The cabin was considerably smaller than any balcony cabin we have ever been on. We could not even get by each other. We are used to a larger cabin having a refrigerator and bath tub. We had neither.....very disappointing!!!
The crew was excellent, very responsive and helpful. The boat was way over crowded and it was difficult to navigate through most areas, many people pushing and shoving. We feel cheated on our $2,000+ purchase. So we are done with Carnival for good.
