Itinerary: Mexico

The embarkation was easy and fast. Our room was spotless and our cabin steward was wonderful. We found the food, especially the fish was not fresh and the food generally was bland. I had eggs benedict and steak with bearnaise sauce, neither of the sauces were made from scratch and they were tasteless. We found no information on ports except those sheets advertising shops, not even a free map! There were no talks on ports, history etc and the library had been denuded of books by previous passengers who walked off with them. I was astounded at the number of truely obese people who were happy to load their plates with cardiac specials. Not Carnivals fault but it gives you an idea of the kind of people they cater to. Lots of drunks in the evenings and very poor entertainment. The comedian thought he could score points with the number of times he said the f word. I thought generally that the staff, crew etc were much more cultured, genteel and intelligent that the majority of passengers. Sad. If you're looking for an enriching experience this line is not for you.
