Sail Date: Jan 2009
Cabin: Balcony

My favorite part of the trip was visiting the ports, even the museums. My favorite port was Puerto Montt and seeing the Chilean horses. Next I liked walking among the penguins in Puerto Madryn. This cruise was a one time event so I won't go into each port except to say that we took a lot of Carnival Shore Excursions. They were well planned and offered a variety of choices. I always felt safe, learned a lot and had a wonderful time.


I think the staff on the ship must have been hand picked. They were way above expectations in efficiency, friendliness and willingness to serve. Our wait staff was the same through out. Bianca and Gil learned each person's individual tastes. They really anticipated our needs. We received the best table service I have ever had in my 35 cruises. Our cabin steward from the first leg stopped us in the hall during the last week to ask how our trip had been. We saw that same attitude in all areas... not just waiters and cabin stewards but even the purser's desk and Infirmary!!
