Of course nothing is final yet and they will be tweaking this over several weeks and perhaps months.

I don't understand why they are doing this. The dining room food has been a consistent high point for Carnival for several years now, according to cruise reviews and comment cards. Why change something that was popular?
It seems to be what Carnival does best. Messing up things that work well. When we started cruising there was an 11 piece ship band and over 20 dancers. According to my daughter the Big Shows always got high marks and yet now the band is 6 with a music track and only 16 dancers, and on the 2.0 ships even fewer singer/dancers. Why they do this is a mystery to me. It's like the company was being run by an short sighted accountant,- wait a min that is exactly what is going on!!
