Cruise to No Where!

Sail Date: September 2011
Destination: USA
Embarkation: Vancouver

Because this was a repositioning cruse following the Alaska cruise season, the price was right! We booked short notice (less than three weeks) and received a great deal. We were put in an aft facing, extended balcony cabin on the main deck (deck 4). It was wonderful! The roar of the water as the ships screws pushed the ship through the water was great! If you want to sit on a quite balcony and enjoy the view, then don't get an aft facing cabin. You had to raise your voice to be heard. It was worth it because the view and cabin were great!

Carnival's entertainment was standard, song and dance shows in the main area and comedy shows in the lounge each night.

The embarkation was very slow because the computers in Vancouver were down and everything had to be hand written and verified. We ended on a slow note also in LA because they could not get the brow to setup correctly with the ship. We had to stay on board an extra couple of hours. Less
