Carnival wins IMHO
I have done RCCL, NCL and Carnival.
RCCL's presentation, service and desserts are much better than Carnival. But for taste and selection Carnival beats them hands down. IMHO
I have only done NCL America (Hawaii) and their food is just awful. The only enjoyable food on this ship was in the Japanese restaurant where the chef cooks the food right in front of you. That food was delicious. All the rest was lacking. I believe the Freestyle concept has a lot to do with the lousy food b/c so much has to be pre-prepared not knowing when people will show up for what dish.
