Sail Date: Mar 2015
Cabin: Large Ocean View Stateroom

It wasn't as good as the first cruise we did on Carnival. The cabin was smaller but still OK and nice. We were meant to go to Fiji but didn't get there. The reason was a cyclone. every day the captain changed his mind as to where we were going. Instead of going to the Isle of Pine which was no where near the cyclone, we stopped for the first day in Newcastle. A big disappointment for all. He kept heading to where the cyclone was. It was days before it passed Fiji. First we were going to Luginville. then it was changed to Champagne Bay. But as the cyclone was still there. we had to go at a very slow speed and spend another day at sea. We got there just after the cyclone had left. This was day 7 of a 12 day day cruise. It still hadn't got down to passing Fiji. Next day we called at Luginville which was badly hit with the cyclone two days before. I wrote in to complain and got a very snooty reply 3 weeks later and half of what I read was untrue. The entertainment wasn't as good as our other line.
