Floating Walmart

Sail Date: April 2013
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Good Stuff:
Transfer from airport to port: 5 stars
Laundry service: 5 stars
Getting off the ship:5 stars
Watching Willy and Gumby: 5 stars
Cabin Steward: very accommodating: 5 stars

Bad Stuff:
Getting on ship.... Idiotic and disorganized:1 star
Drink prices - sky high!: 1 star
Dining room staff was pathetic, slow and did not care at all. tiger shrimp looked like product i'd normally throw away: 1star
Buffet food is very low quality... Indian food? Looked like vomit. Wtf? : 1 star
Buffet areas also very dirty, and had long lines!! Screw the pizza maker zombies too!
Ice cream machines always broke, dirty and cones laying all over the place.
Hope you don't like ice in your drinks on sea days. By noon the ice was scarce at the drink dispensers... Maybe on purpose so that you can purchase a 9 dollar frozen drink to cool off and/or drown your sorrows ... Who knows?
Wi-fi? Take out a second mortgage, buy 9 dollar drinks because More it crawls!!!!: 1 star
Like seeking diesel fumes in your cabin? The DREAM is for you!!! That's what happens when the Captain has an extra day to get to Costa Maya and steams at 9 knots. The fumes circle back into the cabins... Very nice touch Massimo!!!!
Pools: need serious attitude to fight for deck chairs and a spot in the pool
Loved seeing shorts and tank tops in the dining room too! That's the type of clientele on the ship... Wally World junkies with a credit card.... Get me outa here Carnival.. Am I dreaming?

Conclusion: save your money, dine at Golden Corral, go to a busy Walmart and pump some diesel fumes into your bedroom! Voila! Carnival Dream Less

Cabin review: 4H Interior

Very small rooms and the smell of diesel. When can I come back for more?
