Cabin: Balcony

Carnival Long Beach to Santiago Chile leg 1. I just read the first review on this cruise, and was wondering if i was on the same ship. we found the cruise, with the exception of the embarkation disaster, extremely pleasant. when one cruises with Carnival , you have to expect something less than perfect. after all "you get what you pay for".

Embarkation: what a disaster. we have to agree with the previous reviewer. it really was quite stupid on carnivals part. no matter what they did after it, they still probably lost a good percentage of repeat business. As any marketing person knows, you don't make the client angry in the beginning. And no comp of any kind. Unbelievable.

Cabin: Really quite pleasant. Clean, bright and roomy. Downside is only one 110 plug in the whole cabin. we had read about this before and brought a multi-plug extension cord which solved the problem.
