Sail Date: Jan 2013

I booked the klove Christian cruise early as it always sells out. This is paid out over the year and when you go it's all paid for and you are so ready to go and spend some premium time with the Father,and theSon. Lay on the deck in the sun and just reflect on where your life has been and where you and Jesus are going together. My hubby and I also were looking forward to some quality time with each other.

We flew into Miami from Dallas had a beautiful hotel with a bayside view , a little on the expensive side but what the heck. Most of the cruisers stayed at one or the other choice of hotels.

From the bus trip to the ship terminal everyone was so ready and smiling ear to ear. The departure was like forever in the terminal, it took 2 hours to board and we were in the very first zones to be called. Finally on board at noon, rooms not available until 3:30 ? Why is that carnival . We eat a buffet ( not impressed) with that. We were beginning to tire out so we go sit down and wait and wait and wait. We asked for a balcony room which should be a little larger that a normal state room right?

Cabin Review

Cabin 9166 was in poor shape , balcony room forward , if ship had been in better condition and room not so small , who knows 10 years ago she might have been.

Port Reviews


We never got off the boat , hubby was sick and we did not need to catch anything else.

Read where a group of cruisers were robbed in Mexico on the way back to ship and now carnival is trying to reimburse them for money, cameras, and jewelry . I do not want any part of that .
