Best Cruise Yet

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Baltimore

This will be very brief. We have sailed this ship four times all from Baltimore. Never ever had a bad experience and the crew has been first rate. We've been on the 4th deck rear wrap around each time and are now totally spoiled.

1. I wasn't dressed properly. It was chilly last week (last week October) and I didn't have enough warm clothes. Nassau and Freeport were very breezy and cooler than normal.

2. Purchase liquor on the Bon Voyage Package. Saved a lot of money.

3. Baltimore is a less dressy group. A tux would have been a waste - a sports jacket for a man was fine for formal nights.

4. Tip your cabin steward a $20 on the first night. Every time we do this our service is amazing.

Gripe:

The "First to Fun" program for the cost negates the tens of thousands of dollars I have spent on 14 cruises with Carnival and needs to be stopped. I realize that it is very limited but devalues status for people paying the price.

A More Plus:

As Platinum we left the cabin at 8:00 and were off the boat by 8:15. Same with getting on - we sailed right through.

We'll continue to use Carnival. Less
