First of all, the good things. Our cabin steward Lamphong, Matt from the casino and our head waiter Pablo were exceptional. Always doing their best to make you smile. We ate in the steakhouse 2 times because it was so good. Also Guys Burgers is awesome. Now the not so good. We were late getting into port in Ocho Rios which I guess snowballed people getting off for excursions. They herded a couple of thousand people into a small building with tour people trying to yell instructions over the din. Very very unorganized. It was unorganized in all the ports. They need to find a better way. (Celebrity/Royal Caribbean does a great job). After arriving to our room (an aft balcony) we asked for robes and were told there were not enough on board for everyone. Who does that? And this is the second Carnival cruise in which we purchased a wine package and they ran out of my wine. Hubby prefers Merlot and I prefer Pinot Grigio. They ran out of Pinot on the last evening on two trips. Makes no sense to me. Another thing is Carnival does not have anywhere on their website to post comments. Afraid? Carnival is okay. We had a good time. They just need a little improvement in some areas. Read Less

I chose this cruise as part of the Greater Federation of Women's Clubs - Florida had selected the cruise. The cruise was "OK" - this was my fifth cruise on Carnival Cruise Lines and the other ones were superior particularly regarding entertainment and meals. Entertainment was sorely lacking on this cruise - no big show in a theater. Fairly good comedy in one of the lounges and some decent musicians and singers in other lounges. I particularly disliked the set-up for Anytime Dining. One had to go to one deck to register each night and then sit and wait for in a designated area for a table. This two step process may have been more efficient for Carnival, but it took away from any perceived advantage of Anytime Dining. If I were to choose another Carnival cruise I would find out first if they are using this new form of Anytime Dining setup and if so, would opt for a set dining time. Read Less
