Always Have a Good Time
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
We always enjoy meeting new people and look forward to our assigned dinner seating. We were told on booking that we couldn't choose our table size, so we were a little disappointed when we were seated at a table for 4. Well, the other couple assigned to our table never showed up, so it was just the two of us all week. :( We enjoyed our servers and they made us feel special. We did get to meet people at the open seatings for breakfast and lunch, but I wish we could have chosen a larger table.
We also enjoy the song and dance shows in the main theater, but this cruise, the sound volume was off the charts. We sat through 2 shows, with our fingers in our ears most of the show, and decided not to even attend the third show. We weren't the only ones, I noticed others holding their ears also.
It seemed that Carnival was experimenting with 'family' comedy shows on this cruise. The show we attended, in my opinion, bombed, as it was geared toward five year olds. We have More not been happy with the 'adult' shows in the past, so we were pleased to see that they were doing a 'family' show. Well, it should have been called a 'kids' show. It was obvious that the comedian was used to doing adult only shows and didn't know any comedy for all ages. You can do comedy that is geared towards adults, but is not offensive - Carnival should figure out how to do this. We go to an over 21 comedy club in our town often, and it is not offensive and we always enjoy it.
We live in Florida, so we drove to the port and parked in the parking garage. We chose to carry our bags off the ship on disembarkation. The process was easy and we were in our car and on our way home by 8 am. Less

Cabin review: 8D8357 Balcony
I think our room was directly below one of the kitchens of the Mediterranean Dining room, as we could hear what sounded like carts rolling back and forth above us until about 1 am every night.Read All Balcony (8D) Reviews >>
