My only beef: Carnival for best food? Guy's Burger Joint and the The BlueIguana Cantina aboard Carnival's Fun 2.0 ships are nice, but they really can't touch the fare at some of the higher-end cruise lines, including Regent Seven Seas, Oceania, Silversea, Celebrity Cruises and even Seabourn and Holland America.
