Sail Date: Sep 2013

My family decided to take this cruise for my parents 30th wedding anniversary that coincides with my sister and mothers birthday. We had no children it was my parents, myself and my sister and her husband. The itinerary was amazing but we were warned in advance that you get what you pay for and that carnival had a reputation and it certainly lived up to it.

We arrived in Barcelona and the check in process was fine though slightly disorganized. Once we were boarded (around 11am) we were told our rooms would not be ready until 1pm and that we could only explore certain parts of the ship and enjoy the buffet. Buffet was fine nothing to write home about.

After about an hour we snuck into our rooms because after traveling for almost 12 hours we needed a nap. We had one captains suite and an Ocean suite. The ocean suite was great for my sister and her husband and they enjoyed the room.
