Sail Date: 01/13/13
My family was so excited to go on this beautiful new ship. And it is gorgeous. However, everything else was meh. Though our dinners in the dining room each night were delicious and we managed to find a few hidden gem food options on board, some of the food (especially the buffet on the Lido deck) was honestly inedible. We went to eat our scrambled eggs the first morning and had to spit them out - SO GROSS.
Aside from the food, the lack of entertainment was really disappointing. There were only TWO nights of comedy all week, which resulted in ridiculous lines for every show. The last Carnival ship we were on had comedy EVERY night - why would this awesome new ship have hardly any?
My last complaint is regarding the smoking areas - in this day and age, how is it that Carnival made two major (indoor) evening entertainment areas - specifically the dance club and the casino - smoking areas?! It was infuriating that we couldn't enjoy ourselves at night without sitting in a cloud of someone else's smoke. Get it together, Carnival.
