Cabin: Balcony
Traveled with children

We have sailed with Carnival before but this time was just horrible. We always eat at the sit down restaurant because buffet food is not always the best and we actually got up and left twice. Once the food was horrible and once we never got our food. The lobster was like mush, it would literally squish thru your fork. The veal parm was so hard it was inedible. We were at the roulette table for 2 1/2 hours and no one ever came to get us a drink. On another night a group of us were at the slot machines and someone had to leave a machine and go find a waiter. It was a huge disappointment. I hope it was just this ship but we will never travel with Carnival again. The one good thing was we had a beautiful balcony room and Anton was an amazing steward.
