For 50th Reunion I loved the Havana Experience Dining The dining room experience was the worst I have ever had. There were only tablecloths on the tables 2 night. You had to save your fork from your salad for your main course. I got a baked potato on several nights and it was hard. On lobster night the waiters did not remove the lobster from the shell like I have experienced on my past 38+ cruises. Your time dining was the worst. You had to go to deck 5 to get a table on deck 3 every night. On the one night we had a group dinner when we got the dining rooms the tables were not ready and caused us to eat a separate table. We were randomly invited to do a chef tasting at breakfast one morning. Now that was a treat. The only drawback was that after tasting everything we were not hungry for dinner. But if you get the chance take it. Entertainment Typical mediocre cruise ship entertainment. I guess I am spoiled by Royal. I did not like the layout of the main theater because of the poles The 3 D theater was fun but kind of hokey. Maybe the subject matter because it was Halloween. Embarkation and Debarkation was a breeze. Mainly because we are Diamond and had priority. Casino Very smokey in the entire Casino. Felt like I needed to burn my clothes when I got out. Since we had already been to the ports we only did one tour at the last minute in Cozumel. It was a good tour.

Disappointed in Carnival
