This was our fifteenth cruise, first on Carnival. We live in Pennsylvania, so getting to the Port of Baltimore was a breeze. We arrived at the port at 12:30, and were eating lunch in the Lido less than an hour later.
We were allowed into the cabins at 3:30, and were amazed to find so much room. We had an "obstructed balcony cabin." We were not sure what this meant, but found out that there was a life boat even with the floor of the balcony. It really did not effect the view in the least. We spent a lot of time on the balcony during this cruise because the weather was beautiful and warm.
The cabin itself was spacious. We had a king-size bed, a couch and two night stands along one wall. There was plenty of storage space, and the bathroom was adequate. One nice touch was a bowl of amenities on the bathroom counter.
Dis-embarcation was also a breeze. We carried our own luggage off the ship, which is very convenient for those that park there.
We found the food to be outstanding! Lobster night was fabulous. My DH enjoyed the fried oyster appetizer. I loved the warm chocolate melting cake - I ordered it every night.
