*** First off.... when you come from the hotel and need to put your baggage with the crew to load..... I got harassed about 5 times that they take donations (the crew bagging for a tip) when i complained to customer service they said they were not supposed to ask there union workers and on top of that they were just doing there job. they did no special treatment for my luggage.
*** I can feel the boat move all day. i dont know what cruise line someone else was on that didnt feel the boat move. but i felt it all the time and so did the party of 5 i came with. Now you can tolerate it but please be aware you will be feeling the movement.
*****the boat was small, not that many places to go. 1 level for shops and about 6 shops..... 2 were like jewelry shops , a candy shop and a souvenir shop and that was about it. i small small circle of shops.
***** they whole time they will have you trying to buy things.. drinks...spa packages..etc etc throughout the cruise. and if you are not buying drinks crew just ignores you if you want to buy a soda.. you need to get it yourself .
*****entertainment was ok. some comedians were funny in the burgundy room.
**** buy your excursions on shore the cost of carnival is rised like 75%!!! they say they give the best price.. but just compare on your first excursion..you will see.buy from the locals!
**** casino sucks . I love to play at casinos. if you spend 150 dollars expect to only win about 10 dollars. so really you will be down 140. ..nobody was winning on slots x3 days i played there...lol they had a picture of someone winning 200 dollars on the cruise in the casino.
****vilma was our housekeeping lady.... the nicest employee!!! she was sweet.other party i came with said there housekeeping guy was also very nice. so big plus for there housekeeping staff.
*****other employees didnt really smile. you'll see
***** getting off and on the ship on all excursions and ports were fast and efficent.
**** took 3 teenagers and they enjoyed the activities and enjoyed the cruise.(myself early 30s and my mom 50's) were kind of bored on cruise.
**** food best part... they keep u feed.you wont go hungery.
