It was nice - but not our best cruise ever
Our room was 5118 and our girlfriend's was 5116 - balconies. Carnival gets a 10 for their rooms, the bedding is FABULOUS, still miss it. I had read on Cruise Critic to ask to have maintenance come in More and take out the divider thingie between the balconies and then we had even a bigger baloncy that we all thoroughly enjoyed every single day. Now, it will be SO hard to go back to an inside room.
Weather was terrific in every port.
Food in MDR was okay, not spectacular. Ruben and Kevun were very good though. I was a little concerned the first night (which I understand) service was slow, but it got better.
Entertaiment was good - not a big fan of any cruise line's dancers/singers, but enjoyed the comedians and, of course, Quest. Don't miss that!!!!!
Don't gamble or drink much, so can't comment on that.
Our room steward was great as well. We called him Chai. I did notice on this ship that sometimes people who work on the ship had a little bit of a language barrier this time around.
Disembarkation, one of the easiest and smoothest we have had. No problem, got in around 8-ish, was off ship by 10 or so.... Holland America should learn from Carnival.
We are just used to Celebrity's class and food, but Carnival was not bad. Cruise director Kirk was good. Jamie okay, a little too loud. Less
Cabin review: 5118
extended balcony, lots of room everywhere, didn't even use it all. Loved having both balconies opened. Sometimes you could hear the base from the theater, but it wasn't a problem. Even with Camp Carnival right down the hallway, it wasn't too bad.
Port and Shore Excursions
CRUISE SHIPS NEED TO SKIP FLORIDA AND STAY LONGER IN FREEPORT. JUST A THOUGHT.
