Cabin: Interior

Of the seven cruises this was the worst, no recognition for past cruisers in captain party. No update on current carnival status. Just two free bottles of water. Went to dinner in at our time 8:15 was so turned off by staff. Food was terrible, staff was rude. We ate rest of time I

On Alito deck same food each day. Yuck. Bartender in lobby bar was rude and down right ugly to me and several other customers. Didn't like working cause Costa Maya port cancellation due to weather. No corvid19 testing or checking just health form. Only good things cabin steward were excellation and very personal. Activities director Juana from buffalo by. Was one of the best we seen. Shows were not of carnival ranking we have been on before. Why were we not inform of covid19 at cozemel prior to the cruise. 1st case was found in Mexico city on 28 Feb our cruise date was 2-7 mar. Several crew demonstrated very rude and disrespectful attitudes to us and other people. Ship needs a complete cleaning. Rust on outside in several emergency boat launchers and noticed on ship in a lot of places. Our first cruise was on the non smoking ship paradise. That was in 2001. Back then carnival gave little pins with the ship name on them. That was a cruise.
