Every day is a Carnival day !!

Sail Date: August 2012
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona
We stayed in a spa balcony on deck 12 the spa was relaxing and usually not very full of people. We had an 8s grade balcony not sure how this differs to other balconies as we have stayed in a cove balcony on a previous carnival cruise and this was lovely too.

As with all carnival ships the food is endless and if you dont mind the rude people in the lido we just got on with it and became just as good at pushing back. I enjoyed the restaurants on an evening and the frank sinatra singer was great and the dancing waiting staff really good fun.

The food to me was good and loads of different things on the menu the best night we had was on the overnight in venice when everyone got off we went for dinner to find it really empty and our three waiters had time to chat to us and they were really good fun the reason we stayed on board was the rain started and we didnt fancy getting soaked getting from the ship.

The serenity area was lovely but children were in and out of More it all the time even though it clearly states over 21 when our kids are with us we would not let them run in and out so would not use the serenity it seemed a lot of the parents were sun bathing whilst the kids were up and down the water slides shouting to them from the top very annoying i think the staff in serenity should be telling them rather than ignoring them.

As with all family cruises in summer hols you can expect loads of kids we have them i think alot of people complain about this but my thoughts are dont go on a cruise in august if you want to not see loads of kids or noise. Overall i would go back on carnival i love them missed butch and baby butch from the dream but john and calvin were brill. Met calvin in a lift and he was really funny. We enjoyed the trips did two with carnival and one to capri on our own we just got up really early and went on the hydrofoil then got the boat to sorrento and had lunch and back to naples by boat saved alot on the ships trip but you need to give yourself loads of time just in case.

Cant wait for my next trip hopefully from san juan in 2013 with carnival

Cabin review: 8S12034 Spa Balcony

Our cabin was a spa balcony 8S thought not sure what was the difference as we have previously had a cove balcony of the same size presumably it was being on deck 12 not 2 as previous but very comfortable indeed

Port and Shore Excursions

Ok port embarked and spent the day before visiting all the usual sites - be really careful if you use the underground as pick pockets are rive and operate in gangs preying on unsuspecting tourists who are just enjoying the holiday we were done the year before and they took my husband's wallet thankfully only 200 euros but much more in terms of all his cards - lesson learned dont carry more than you need for the day we learned this hard lesson. Thanks
