We chose this cruise for New Years getaway. The service and food was not as good as in the past on other ships. The dining staff messed up orders in main dining, some food had no flavor or dry and some things ordered were never served. The staff was not as friendly as on other ships. The dining staff took a couple days to warm up and really get into the fun. Even with some bumps along the way we still enjoyed our vacation. We enjoyed the New Years balloon drop and deck party. The cruise director Emma was very energetic and seemed to really enjoy herself and all the guests. We also enjoyed all the art work and art auctions on board. We learned albeit several new artists . We will be back on Carnival in the future. We will not let 1 not as good cruise stop us from sailing again soon.

Good but not as good as others
