I expected more. Even Diamond/Sapphire guests noted cost cutting.

Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin:

Consensus among some was that Carnival is implementing more cost cutting measures on board. Ship still in good shape and service from stateroom staff is still great, but availability of staff elsewhere can be lacking.

Resupply of out of stock restaurant/bar items did not seem to occur during the cruise. The most obvious seeming cost cutting is the food; In the Lido, proteins, with FEW exceptions, are overcooked/dry, vegetables are high in starch with few green or fresh vegetables available outside the salad bar. Food served in Lido and Main Dining Rooms is room temperature. Wait times for delivery of food in the Main Dining Room and re-stocking of food in the Lido are extensive (may be another staffing issue?)

Itinerary was great as was selection and quality of shore excursions. Entertainment and activities were average to good. Smokers "own" ALL outdoor starboard areas, making even a casual walk around Deck 5 problematic.
