Overall Member Rating
Loved every second of our 1st cruise!!!!
Destination: Southern Caribbean
When we did get to our room, we were amazed at the size, not quite sure what i expected but was certainly presently surprised, ample sized balcony. Did not realise i could get so excited about having an ice bucket and mini bar!! Food- We only ate in the main resteraunt on 1st night and last night, mainly because we found the food in the buffet resteraunts so good (must do the chinese at lunch time- amazing) and didn't feel we needed to schedule our cruise to dinner times.
The trips were amazing, although we did find that if you leave the ships and went with the local tours, they were More aroud 25% cheaper and had much less traveling time!! Never failed to find a sun bed ondeck (even on the 1 day at sea)took advantage of all enertainment on offer and honestly cannot think of a bad thing to say about the cruise!!!!!
Our biggest issue was with our tour operator on final day! had to disembark at 1, no pick up until 2.30 (had to sit dockside) and then 2hrs waiting (outside) airport, although there are worse places to be stranded i'm sure! Then when check in did open, another 3hrs wait for plane! The cruise, was our 1st, but certaily will not be our last, roll on our next Carnival Cruise Less
Cabin review: 8A6215 Balcony
Loved it, We had a balcony cabin on level 6 (6215) and could not fault it other than we were quite near to the main entertainment area so some nights i did feel i knew the show before i actualy saw it, just because i could hear the staffs rehearsal. when we boarded we found our TV didn't work, one phone later and we had a maintanence man ready to repair. As he could not do immediatly, asked what time we would be out so that he didn't disturb. by the time we returnrd from dinner, 1 working TV! The shower was amazing, plenty hot water and lots of power! Hairdryer? Forget it, take you're own if you don't want to spend an hour blow drying!Very clean, plenty of space, lovely comfortable bed, not too much noise from corridors and balcony is a must in my mind! The sky at night in the Caribean is the clearest i think you could ever see. Only downside i can see is that when ship at sail (most nights) the outside lights have to be off! Bit of a pain if, like me you'd like to chill and read a book on your balcony whilst listening to the sea lapping around the boat! Next time, i'll take a torch!! 10/10Read All Balcony (8A) Reviews >>
