Victory Was Ours!
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
On Sunday we headed to the cruise ship. We were in line about 12:15pm and were on the ship within 30 minutes. We headed to the More Lido deck for the buffet and then went to check on our room. Our room was ready by 1:30pm. We had room 1402 on the Riviera deck. It is an inside cabin with a twin bed and bunk above. It has a small couch. We booked this room on purpose as we were excited to have more legroom. The room was clean and we really enjoyed having the legroom. We took turns sleeping on the bunk the deal was whoever had the lower bed had to get up and answer the door for room service. The only problem we had with this room was that the remote control for the TV was broke and Carnival wasted no time getting a new remote for us. Our cabin steward was Ozzy and he kept our room neat and clean and the ice bucket full.
We alternated our meals between the main dining room and the buffet. The food was good both places. We almost did not find the sandwich place we were used to it being in the back of the ship but it is in the buffet hallway instead.
We enjoyed the piano bar player. The shows were great. J.R. McCullum gives a great comedy show the family and adult were equally good. We enjoyed the hot tubs on the Serenity deck and working out in the gym. We did not use the pool but never had a problem getting a chair on the pool deck.
The worst things I can say about Carnival are they make me eat two desserts on the night the serve the Tiramisu and Bitter n Blanc. They will not give me a carton of the fruit juice they serve on the lido deck to take home and they make me get off the ship when the cruise is over. As always the staff are the best!!!! Less
Cabin review: 4A1402 Interior
Cabin 1402 Riveria deck. Inside cabin has one twin bed and a bunk bed, there is a small sofa and coffee table in the room. Has more floor space this way. One closet is by itself with the safe in it and life preservers then two regular closets. The vannity table/bar area is combined so it is longer. Has older TV no flat screen. Quiet location with one side not sharing a wall with another room. When you come around the corner from the aft elevator it is the first stateroom.Read All Interior (4A) Reviews >>
