I choose this cruise because we brought family with us who never cruised before. It was the shortest cruise we ever did. I have always took a cruise with carnival to celebrate my anniversary. I got a gift card that was expired. They didnt sing Happy Anniversary to us or acknowledge us at dinner. This was completely strange to us. We always get a bottle of wine and the waiters sing to us. We actually enjoy the special attention they paid to us on our last cruise. We also told them it was my nieces birthday and they didnt acknowledge her at all. Every night we heard waiters singing happy anniversary and happy birthday to other guests. Destinations were at Key West and Cozumel. I think it would have been nice to know that at both destinations we docked away from all the major attractions, all on the other side of the islands. Key West was too quick, and they rushed us back on the ship ...we had until 1:30, that changed to 1PM and then they told us to be on the ship by 12 noon...we got off the ship close to 8:30AM that left no time to see anything on the other side. The food quality has gone down, cold food, no surf and turf (included) everything was extra which usually isnt for at least one dinner. The activities for late dinner guest were not properly timed. We missed the comedy and other things we would have liked to do. The ship was extra rocky. I witnessed one of the food servers using the restroom and walking out without washing her hands. This is my last carnival cruise.

It was nothing compared to my other 3 cruises with Carnival
