Big Boat, Big Fun......Disappointing Casino Expriences......
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
1. If you are one who likes to GAMBLE, AKA play BlackJack, Craps, then YOU WILL NOT FIND ANY and I mean ANY $5 minimum bets on any of the tables on this ship!! The minimum bet on the tables start at $6, then go on to $10 and even a $25 table, but most of the Blackjack tables start off at $6, the same with the Craps table. Plus, they do use More automatic card shufflers and regular card shues(usually half tables with automatic shue and half with regular shue). Also, carefully read the Blackjack table's sign, it clearly states that they play with 8 packs of cards and REMOVE ALL OF THE QUEENS!!! Nice, real nice, nice to see that Carnival's Casino believes in trying to keep that "house" edge!2. Also, some of this ship's casual eating stations which are located on the 10th floor in the "Gathering" section of the ship are supposed to be open from lunchtime up until 2:30pm-3:00pm, my wife and I found this to be a complete hassle all the time, these sections close way earlier than they are supposed to!! This completely sucked for my wife and I because a lot of these little eating stations have really good food!!
3. Another little pain in the butt thing that you have to watch out for on this ship is; the idiots who decide to when using the ship's elevator, to press the floor button and the close elevator button at the same time, which leaves you the party waiting for the elevator screwed because the elevator never stops at your floor and instead goes flying by you and then you have to wait another damn 30 minutes for a elevator to show up!
4. This ship is HUGE, you will get very tired on the very first day of your cruise from all of your walking around, so just take cat naps and go back out and explore this very cool and groovy ship!! Less
Cabin review: 1A1317 Interior Upper/Lower
My wife and I's cabin was your "basic" Interior cabin with a king size bed, we liked it a lot and it was not too small. The shower was awesome and always had hot water when needed. Housekeeping service was excellent and fast! The Cabin's Digital TV was big and worked well. The TV also featured the ability to order room service, which my wife and I used quite a lot!Read All Interior Upper/Lower (1A) Reviews >>
