We chose this cruise based on recommendations of friends who have used Carnival out of other ports and raved about their service. We chose New Orleans for convenience.
Embarkation was very well organized and went very smooth. We explored the ship and our stateroom most of the day with no issues.
Our issues started the first night at dinner. We ordered drinks to go with dinner and after reminding the server four times during the dinner they finally arrived just as we were finishing desert. The food portions were very small and we felt rushed, as soon as you put down your fork the server swooped in and made off with the plate. We stopped going to the dining room after the 2nd night and opted for the buffet the rest of the nights.
