This was our 3rd Carnival cruise and 8th cruise overall. Until this point we had been very please with Carnival and the level of service and food quality when compared to the other cruise lines we have sailed with. This time, we were disappointed in what appears to be a decline in service, an overall reduction in the availability of food and the food quality. With regards to the service, we've always had our room cleaned after we left the cabin regardless of the time of day we finally got up and going. We always came back to our room each night to find our cabin had "Turn Down" service. This time, on the first day, our steward let us know that we would need to call if we left our cabin after a certain time if we wanted the cabin cleaned, we also had to opt for nightly "turn down" service. With the food, this was hit and miss. The dining rooms appeared to still have the quality of food that we've always known and the steak house was just absolutely excellent. But the buffet and food quality was definitely down as well as the "extra" offerings we've experienced in the past did not happen such as midnight buffets. Just another thing I noticed was that certain food items on the buffet were no longer serve yourself as much as you want and you actually had to request the item, ie., Bacon.bayareasooner, Yesterday at 10:12 PM
It was a wonderful cruise! Our wait staff was the best I have ever had, and I have been on 9 cruises! Anthony, Albert and Bagus, (and Sean, the matri'D were so exceptional! My grandsons were on the cruise, and the wait staff, especially Anthony and Bagus, were so great to the kids, my 7 year old cried when he had to leave Anthony! He did card tricks, and all kinds of cool stuff to keep the kids busy while we ate. They brought their food right away, they were just fabulous! Our room steward Raabe, was excellent too, never had to ask for anything! Each evening I had a glass of Moscato, and they ran out, and didn't have any for the last two nights, which I found odd. The dancers were just amazing, the show they put on was the best ever! You can tell how much work went into this show! Talked to one of the dancers named Chris, from Pennsylvania, and he was so kind and patient talking to us, such a nice young man! My daughter had a problem with one of the Build a Bear associates. The leg on the leopard she bought ripped, and when she brought it back the girl that waited on her was incredibly rude to her. If Carnival wants this program to succeed, then the associates running it have to be nicer. She found out (from a nice young man that took care of her) that it had been overstuffed, and that is why it ripped. He didn't argue with her, he was very nice, and gave her a new one. Also, need to get the places where the kids are measured for the waterslides in sync...on one, my grandson was tall enough to go down the slides, on the other one he wasn't, and they sat and argued with my daughter about it, and then told her he couldn't go down ANY of the slides...I felt that was really wrong. This was a vacation of a lifetime, their FIRST cruise, and he was not allowed on any waterslides. He is only four, and he loves waterslides. We should have gone to guest services and complained, but I know it really upset my daughter and her husband.ShelleyL5, Yesterday at 6:36 PM
