Sail Date: Sep 2008

Our first day in Rome. We stayed at the Visconti hotel which was close to everything. As long as everything is loads and loads of walking. We visited the Trevi fountain, and other main sites in Rome. Dinner that night was at Alla Rampa restaurant. A great find that my sister recommended and satisfies even the most fastidious tastes. It has been there for more than 40 years. It is situated in the centre of the Old Town of Rome, between the tourist attraction Spanish Steps and Mignanelli Square.

The next day we were picked up at our hotel by Carnival and taken to the ship which is about a 90 minute drive from Rome.

Check in was nice and fast, we were surprised that they took our passports but we all got them back. Our cabin was 9266 which was near the elevator and stairs but none of that ever became a problem. We went to lunch on the same deck (Lido) while waiting for our bags and lunch was just okay. Breakfast and Lunch at the Lido was pretty much the same meals each day. I would recommend the stir fry but the other food while good wasn't something to write home about. The "Liberty" theme was more like Las Vegas but I didn't go on the trip to be thrilled by the dEcor, we went to be with friends and see Europe!

Cabin Review

Great balcony, central location!
