Traveled with children

I always wanted to visit New Orleans, and found some cheap air tickets and this not so cheap cruise. Embarkation went smoothly, We bypassed an horrible background used to sell pictures and had lunch at Mongolian wok. Be advised that thai sauce is very hot and to ask for more shrimps, beef or chicken since the servers will put just a little bit on your bowl.

That is the reason of the title of this review, I used to dismiss angry complains on generalities like quality of food or small cabins, mainly against Carnival, because the relation value vs price was usually good.

Now, I am thinking a little different, while service continues to be very good, quality and quantity of food has passed let us say from 8 to 6. And yes if you don t like your selection you can order another, but we all know we can not do that every time. So, I suggest to order two or three starters, they are very small anyway, and if possible to check the buffet first since main entrees are the same of the menu.
