Carnival are a line that have not been receiving too good a press just lately, but I can only convey my own experiences with them. I cruised one of their older ships, Elation a few years ago & from an entertainment point of view the bands & groups were the best I’ve heard on any cruise ship, & that’s quite a few. Theatre shows were standard cruise performances & of course American comedians don’t generally appeal too well with British humour. Food was middle of the road cruise fare. I was then on Liberty in it’s first year of service a couple of seasons ago & the food, we all agreed, was up to the standard of RCI’s Brillance, our previous cruise of which we are big fans. Once again the bands were above average cruise ship standard. Things have been changing across the board with cruise lines, so what was good then maybe subject to change here & now, but if by entertainment you mean lively & a bit energetic, Carnival maybe worth a look....Wilba.
