Sail Date: Dec 2013

An awful gas filled the ship for most of the trip, smelled like sewerage/sulfur. My husband and I had an awful time breathing,as did alot of the other passengers. Our room was changed when we complained and we were able to breathe somewhat better as long as we were in the new room on the 7th level. It wasn't until the 3rd day that my husband was able to come out of the room for a little while. I was determined to make the best of it and waited until the rush to go onshore was over so that I would not have to wait long to disembark. On our last day, we both went offshore but were so full of whatever was in the air that we could barely walk around without stopping to catch our breathe.

We really couldn't wait to get off this ship and were thrilled when we did. This elation was soon beaten down when we find out that we ended up returning to a different terminal than we left from. We parked in handicap parking, which was close to the terminal we departed from. Makes sense, huh?

Now, with the change in terminals we are the furthest parking away from the ship!

Cabin Review

Hard to find anything to be happy with this time around. Sickening odors which caused breathing problems.Couldn't enjoy this cruise at all. We have cruised many times with Carnival and had been happy until now. Not sure we will return again.
