Way too many cruisers, not enough staff. Dining was ridiculous, drinks and food took forever to get or everything would be brought out at the same time. We usually love our wait staff, but this time just wants great. We were also in 3 different areas throughout our 5 nights so we didn’t keep the same wait staff like carnival usual does. The director was a little boring too, just didn’t seem very “chipper”. Playlist productions were amazing! Just know that you need pay attention to when it says it’s a playlist production vs the piano bar guy, because if you go to when it’s just the piano bar guy, that’s all you’ll get is him, not the whole production. Zora and Zoran at Alchemy were the best bartenders on the boat. The food was mediocre and really sucked that the taco cantina was only open during like brunch, and Guys burgers was only open until like 6pm, so if you didn’t like the dinner options you could do the buffet or pizza. Just some tidbits, if I got it cheap I’d go again, but that’s the only reason.
