We traveled out of New Orleans to Cozumel, Honduras and Belize. The ship was beautiful although the dining rooms were garish with too much red used in the decorating. We had an ocean suite, and it was lovely. Loved the oversized balcony. Unfortunately, the guest in the next room used his balcony as a smoking lounge which detracted from our enjoyment. Our room steward was outstanding! The food was ok. We ate in the main dining room every evening. Unfortunately, we selected anytime dining for this trip and needed to wait many of the evenings. We will not select anytime again. The food in the dining room was good and the staff accommodated my requests. We ate breakfast in the main dining room. I did not care for the brunch menu. It was too heavy and it was the same menu everyday. The main dining room was not open for a lunch only menu and I certainly missed having a salad and sandwich for lunch. Many days we ate at the buffet. I did not care for the layout. It was difficult to find a variety without visiting multiple food lines, and the salad offerings were poor. I like lots of fresh veggies on my salad and the selection was limited. The hamburger/hot dog bar was one of the speediest I have ever encountered. The entertainment was disappointing. I am tried of the song and dance. The movies were for 12-19 year olds, and the only special activities during the day seemed to be the silly pool games and trivia. The entertainment on Carnival needs to be updated. I did enjoy Punchliners. We never saw the Cruise Director which hasn't happened on other ships. Service on the ship wasn't good. The drink waiters were few and far between. I always had to find a bar to get service. With the exception of our room steward and the waiters in the main dining room at dinner, I felt that service was poor. The staff did not appear to be happy to be on the ship. We went on shore excursions in all three ports. We loved Turtle Beach in Cozumel/Playa Del Carmen and Rendezvous Cay in Belize. We did not enjoy the snorkeling in Roatan. We will not be traveling with Carnival again. Read Less
