Buenos Airies to Rio Carnival
Embarkation: Buenos Aires
Embarkation was difficult as we had to queue for quite some time in the heat. It was so hot inside the port hall that I felt quite faint and needed to be helped to a seat. Our stateroom was very well appointed, with smaller balconies that Celebrity Silhouette class. Not enough room for a lounger. Looks of storage space though. The furniture on board ship was beginning to show its age. The main dining room was dark, for More some reason the lights were always dimmed at night. The waiters and Dining room staff were always very cheerful and attentive. Being a small ship, the entertainment is quite restricted but everyone did their best to put on good shows. I found the shore excursions to be good value when booked before setting sail. One gripe is that of restricted restaurant opening hours. It's not much fun returning from an excursion hungry only to find no food available.
Disembarkation was disappointing and the arrangements we made with Azamara for a day room in order that we might see the sights of Rio did not materialize. This is another reason to travel to and from the ship independently.
The question we need to resolve before booking our next cruise is whether to travel on a larger ship or Azamara size. We might opt for a larger ship. Less
