Sail Date: Mar 2015
Cabin: Balcony

We are from Ontario and my husband is a teacher so we tend to travel during March Break somewhere south. This is our 5th cruise and our second cruise aboard a Carnival ship. We traveled with two other couples. We landed in San Juan on the day of our cruise around 2:30pm. We got a shuttle from the airport to cruise terminal and were through the embarkation process very quickly.

We had cabin 6328 mid ship. This was our first balcony stateroom and we really enjoyed sitting out in the morning enjoying the beautiful ports. The room was spacious and had great storage for two people. The shower had good pressure. The room was showing its age a bit and the tv was older but everything was in good working order with no issues.

I found some of the lay out of the ship difficult. You couldn't get across the ship on third floor and on a few occasions I was up an down the stairs trying to find a way through the ship. I also didn't like to have to go through the casino and the smoke to get to theater.

Cabin 8B

We had cabin 6328 mid ship. This was our first balcony stateroom and we really enjoyed sitting out in the morning enjoying the beautiful ports. The room was spacious and had great storage for two people. The shower had good pressure. The room was showing its age a bit and the tv was older but everything was in good working order with no issues. We did spend a little more time enjoying our cabin because we were relaxing on our balcony. I think I will want a balcony on my next cruise as well.
