Sail Date: Mar 2013
Cabin: Aft-View Extended Balcony

We flew into New York City, only arriving at noon so we booked the Carnival shuttle to the ship as we were worried about our flight arriving late or getting stuck in traffic in a taxi and the shuttle seemed the safest bet. I really recommend arriving at the embarkation port a day ahead. This was stressful! It took about 40 minutes from LGA to the pier and since we were not early we had no difficulties with embarkation plus our room was ready. We had some panic though when we discovered I had set down my husband's camera case along with our carry-on bags when the porter was taking our large bags. Someone gestured to us that the elevator to the next level was waiting for us and we grabbed our bags, got in the elevator and went through security before I realized we did not have the camera. I backtracked a bit but did not know at that time where I had lost it. Carnival employees were very helpful, taking our name and cabin number but we did not expect to see the camera again. What a wonderful surprise to find the camera bag attached to my husband's large suitcase. outside our cabin door later that day! You see, there are honest people out there and it astounded us that they actually matched it up to our luggage because the camera bag did not have our name on it.

We really recommend the deli on Lido where they make the greatest sandwiches.

Muster drill at 3:30. We were all dressed in our winter coats luckily as it was very cold.

Cabin Review

Aft-View Extended Balcony

Cabin 8M

Cabin 6264 aft-extended balcony. The cabin is the same as any other balcony cabin but definitely in a quiet area with little traffic. The view leaving New York of the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Verrazanno Bridge was awesome. And having the aft-balcony meant we could see everything really well. The sound and sight of the wake is soothing. Leaving from New York in March meant it was too cold to enjoy sitting on the balcony at the beginning and end of the cruise. We were asked a lot if there was more 'ship' noises in the aft section but we did not find that there was. One surprise was finding that one of the deck chairs on the balcony could be put back like a lounge chair although it did not have the part for the feet a lounger has. But you could put your feet on the little table.
