Cabin was great Ship was clean and beautiful Shows were good Very disappointed that Cirque de Soliel was having tech difficulties and therefore never performing Staff was ok. Some were great (bars), Dinner waiters were not attentive. Service was ok, Carnival does a much better job Buffet was good Dinner was not good at all. Pastas were undercooked, everything was bland. Desserts were dull, staff of not attentive, wait staff didn't perform, sing, nothing. Dining room (restaurant was too warm, it felt stuffy). If we hadn't made such good friends at our table, we would have probably never gone to dinner after the first 2 nights) Ports were lovely. We didn't take any shore excursions. They were too expensive for such small towns with not too much to do. It was easier to do on our own. The wait for elevators was long, it was easier to take the stairs. We didn't like that people embarked and disembarked at all the ports because the same people were not on the whole cruise. Made it difficult to have relationships. The evening themes were not adequately announced so it was hard to know what to wear. They should have been sent prior to trip so we could have packed accordingly. How would we know to pack a "white" outfit? The cost of doing laundry was outrageous (55 Euro for 10 items) embarkation and disembarkation was smooth We were 2 adults in our 50s
