Sail Date: Dec 2011
Cabin: Balcony

We selected the Christmas Cruise to the Canaries on the basis of a similar cruise on Caronia in 2002. That cruise was excellent and Caronia certainly lived up to the then Cunard image.

Move on ten years, and throw in Carnival management - Oh boy, what a change.

Boarding at Southampton was easier than for most as my wife is disabled so had priority access. Otherwise the queues were long and slow moving.

Good quiet location. Long walk to restaurant. Access to Lido and garden room via nearest lift means crossing an open deck.

Bit prone to pitching in rough seas.
