Very disappointing and a let down. Food was horrible and tasteless. The lines were extremely long and the ship did not have good flow. Pool was totally packed and kids jumping on you without anybody monitoring them. Not much to do on board.
Went to bingo and the gal reading the numbers called them out way too fast. This is our 6th carnival cruise and this time we will not be back. Pay more next time so that we won't have to tolerate the rude and disgusting passengers that skip in front of you, are way too loud, stand in aisles not giving any consideration to anybody but themselves, no shirts on at buffet, wasting plates of food! Carnival has now become the floating Super Walmart of the seas. Carnival has also taken the trays away so good luck trying to carry a plate and drink or soup around a packed ship.
We were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary and chose a balcony cabin again but on this ship opposed to the other Carnivals balconies was small no sofa in there either. We paid almost $2,000.00 for the cruise only. We live in Florida and didn't need airfare. We had miserable time. Had only a few hours in Jamaica and would have liked more in order to see everything. Too much time in Cozumel and not much to do and see, they could have made this port stay shorter. Also be sure to eat before 9:30 pm or you will have to suffer through an hour line waiting for a dried up burger or a rubber hot dog. Pizza line long too and you will need to wait and ward off the two ton vultures to get a slice. I an not kidding. Most coffee stations, water closed later in the evening so be prepared to walk and find one that is open. Ice creams stations broken and closed too. Tried for 3 nights to get ice-cream! Very low class everything with the exception of our cabin stewards who went out their way to please us.
Also, would highly recommend Harrys Steakhouse $30.00 per person but great even though I got food poisoning from maybe the tuna tarte tar? I really don't care what these other reviewers say, all I know is buyer beware and pick a higher end Cruise line so that you won't feel like we do.
