Enjoyed every busy minute on this wonderful cruise
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
Rooms: We where on the Veranda Deck 8 mid had a great room with balcony, bed against the wall was annoying hard to get out, we like a fridge also, however our cabin attendant John kept the More ice coming throughout our cruise. Loved the towel art every night very cute. Staff so pleasant and friendly.
Dining room: We where late dining in the Pacific and had wonderful service from our waiter/ and his assistant both from Bali and both named Gede. Gede had several large groups from the New York area, he had his hands full with them, however he still did an excellent job of giving us lots of attention. After our first night they had our wine ready for us as soon as we sat down.We found the beef to be very good, so tended to stick with it, lots of variety, I tried snapper one night but it's really hard to cook fish and not over do it on a ship. I think anytime dining is the way to go not set into a fixed time. I can honestly say most of the food was quite good and no real complaints. We also loved the little show the wait staff did every night, it just added to the fun, even though they're busy they put a smile on they faces and just do it.
Buffet: We didn't eat there often, but it was a little boring especially the scrambled eggs at breakfast, they where bad, stick with the hard boiled eggs, the omelette station was always too busy.
Room Service: We did breakfast in 3 times bagels salmon and cream cheese yum, right on time and the coffee was good too.
Shows: We thought they did a great job and actually made it to 3 of them, Vroom, City Lights and Carnival legends where all pretty good, Karl with a K is everywhere give them credit they work very hard.
Casino: I'm not a gambler anyways but how do they dare allow smoking in there it's disgusting, no ventilation, people go there so they can smoke. I know people are still smoking on their balconies which is a no no, there is smoking allowed outdoors in certain areas, that's not too bothersome, most people stuck to the rules. Please Carnival make it no smoking, I might even gamble. Aonian Lounge: Loves the salsa music lots of Puerto Ricans on board fun to watch the dancing and try a little ourselves.
I can't wait to go another cruise, they really are great, maybe the eastern Caribbean next time. Less
