- Cabin Type: Cove Balcony
We spent Christmas Day evening in the Speciality Steakhouse. and I can say I was really underwhelmed and it was definately not worth the extra money. I had the surf and turf and my lobster tail and steak were barely lukewarm when It was served. The melted butter for the lobster was warmer than the food. They offered to replace the dinner, but by the time they asked how the meal was, my husband was finished with his meal, and who wants to wait for another meal to be fixed and eat alone? Don't waste your money.
We ate every other night in the formal dining, and the food was very good. We had a set time (6:00 p.m) and we loved having the same waiters and table mates each night that we could visit with. I loved being able to try new things each day. We tried the Mongolian Wok, good but very spicey, just be forwarned. Pig and Anchor was just ok. Guy's burger joint had very good hamburgers. The buffet was just ok. The chocolate special was not good at all. I saw a lot of food not eaten on people's plates. We had omlets a couple of mornings, and they were very good. The sea day brunch was good.
Don't expect to take a swim, the pools are small and overcrowded. The Whirlpools are cold, not even warm. The cruise director was not the best we have had, and was very self-serving, not extremely funny.
We took a Scenic Wildlife River Cruise (Carnival excursion) and it was really underwhelming. Just a boat that went up the river 10 miles and back. It had a roadway running alongside the river, so not really scenic. The wildlife consisted of 1 monkey, 2 iguanas, one small alligator. Certainly not worth the money.
We would not take this cruise again. Overall, not my best cruise, but ok.
