The dining room food and service were excellent. Putja and Marija were great servers. The buffet was very average. Guys Burgers was very good. Entertainment was very average. The excellence of the main dining room and casino earned the 4 stars. We were surprised that the dining room quality exceeded our NCL , and Royal Carribean cruises. So do not eat at the buffet unless you miss your assigned times. Our cruise was free because of the casino. Choose the flexible time dining if possible....then find good servers and request them every night. Putja from Bali and Marija from Croatia were outstanding. In the casino the Fun 21 was great......we have good skills and broke even. The entertainment bands were better than average, but the main stage perfomers very average. I always heard the Carnival were poor quality.....but not really true....slightly better than average. And they do not overcharge on the tours like some cruise lines.

Better than Expected with Carnival
