I honestly do not know where to start! That 1st view from the taxi as we approached the harbour? Amazing, breathtaking!! It was huge!! Getting from the taxi to the ship must've taken all of 5mins! Unfortunately, once onboard we were holed up in a dining room where it took an hour to clear the customs, not a huge problem unless you are as excited as a 12yr old and just want to explore!!
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 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
