Carnival, where the fun never stops, I am still waiting for the fun to begin never mind never stopping.

Things didn' t start well when we got to the port to see a massive queue which we would be stuck in for almost 2 hours, just to check in! There were about 10 kiosks but only 4 or 5 manned and it was slow. There was no information about how long we would have to wait, no coffee stations etc, really bad organisation. They know how many people will be checking in so why not prepare?

Once on board we were told we could have lunch so went to the buffet. We had been up since 7am so were hungry. The buffet is poorly laid out with a few stations. The queues were horrific and we knew there would be no chance of getting any thing to eat, and we were right. I asked to speak to a head waiter but he could not have cared less and kept checking his phone whilst I was talking to him. I have never heard of a cruise where you cannot get anything to eat! Dreadful incompetent planning! They had one guy making sandwiches from fresh, why not have several trays ready on embarkation day. We then had to go to muster and that took forever. We were made to just wait and wait and they never checked who was there so what was the point?
