My travel agent suggested this cruise as I was going alone. We went to many ports thro-out the Mediterranean .i had booked trips off ship independently and had no problems but Carnival had more a choice which I would have preferred, everyone I spoke to had enjoyed their day trips. Even although ports were busy as many cruise ships were docking we didn't have any problems getting into and viewing all attractions.
About the ship-- staterooms are very well equipped with everything you would need for computers etc. great sized TV with good channels also movies both free and paying to view. Room that I was in on deck two which I could recommend as I wasn't far from restaurants bars and shops also shows so suited me down to the ground.
Meals in dining rooms were excellent with a good choice also new items added every day. In fact if you decide to travel on this ship I highly recommend checking out their site. Only down side of the cruise was the smokers . My friend being a nonsmoker and also a casino buff was very disappointed that smokers were allowed all over that area there fore her money stayed in her pocket much to the relief of her husband. It was a nightmare walking through the casino at any time of day to be hit by the fumes, I recommend that in future smokers should go out on a separate deck or a special designated area .
Very clean in fact spotless. Maid service excellent. Loved my towels shaped every night a different animal.bed turned down every night. Room decorated when it was known I was celebrating a birthday. I was situated so well and could view the harbour a very relaxing experience.
Met up,with friends got the ship shuttle and just strolled around old town a market was on so a few euros was spent had a lovely lunch. Great place to visit locals were very friendly.
Enjoyed strolling off shore plenty of little shops at harbour.
