Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2017
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean

This cruise was selected because the port of embarkation (New Orleans). Carnival is the cruise line currently embarking from NO.

The positives:

Guy Fieri's Pig N Anchor

Guy Feiri's Burger Joint

Blue Iguana Cantina

Pizzeria del Capitano

Seaday Brunch

Comedy Club shows

The negatives:

Embarkation staff not trained properly to add credit card to account

Chat function on Carnival HUB did not work for first 24 hours

No emphasis on using Purcell before entering the MDR or Lido Buffett

Stateroom attendant required multiple request for exchange of pool towels

Singing quality of evening production show entertainers

Professional photographs (informal poses)

Dress code in MDR for dinner permitted flip flops, shorts, tank tops, ball caps

Dinner guests were vaping (ecigarettes) in MDR

MDR dinner service included a waiter that offered alcoholic shots from table to table

Everyone may not necessarily agree with my assessment, but theses are my pros & cons. The crew was very friendly and happy. However, the quality of MDR food and evening entertainment needs improvement.
