Arrived on our boat and went to our room at the back of the ship and couldn't believe the size of our room and the huge 6 metre balcony. Looked for 1 of our suitcases that was not at the door so I asked the staff were it was cause it had my wifes medication in in the case......3 pm 4pm 5 pm 6 pm still had not arrived asked the staff each of those times above and they said it will be there soon. Alas it had not arrived by 8 pm so went downstairs to guest services and it was sitting there with 10 other pieces of luggage.
Went to the 9th floor where the pool was and there are people smoking everywhere and children walking thru it could not believe they would cordon off an area for children not to be At the back of the boat they have the adults only pool ..give that to the children where there is NO SMOKING not make them swim where smokers are smoking all day RIDICULOUS
Went to Noumea and Mare where we had to pay 20 bucks for a bus ride only to find people offering the same tickets for 5 dollars.at the bus itself........big scam by carnival. Wanted to buy a drink card for soft drink and couldn't cause after the first day you couldn't.
