The rooms are very nice. Staff nice. Ship is nice, except for the lack of a large pool. We did discover
Tip1-use guest services desk on advice on how to do your excursion at the easy ports. Tip2-do use the sail and sign kiosk or guest services to keep up with your spending everyday, or watch for mistaken charges, and can contest some charges. Tip3-watch out for sales people everywhere, including selling pictures of you and pictures of Mona Lisa! Tip4-The drinks are pretty pricey so we bought a bottle of vodka and soft drinks at the duty free stores located at the building where we boarded. You are allowed to bring a certain amount. We took drinks with us on deck, to the shows, roving around, sunning, etc. That we made in the room! Ice was left for us after they cleaned the room and when they turned down your bed. If you run out, use room service to get more booze and soft drinks. Pricey, not fancy, but very much cheaper than the bars!
Tip5-the food and shows are average. We did not take Carnival for the exclusive treatment on the ship, but fun and adventure. Tip6-for the complicated port use a tour group like Can't Be Missed (CBM) you can arrange on-line, but the ship excursions are pretty pricey! Tip6- Yes, there are Serenity areas on board for adults only. Nice!! We enjoyed watching a Movie from the big screen outdoors. Tip7-Wi-fi is pretty pricey on board. We bought international data and international calling minutes. The calls or texts we could make at port using the country code. Surfing the net is a No! And keep up with you ISP to make sure your not way over. With these Lessons, we plan on going on another cries with this line, but keep the costs down while having a good time and good excursions!
