Is there a way to find out who the funship team is before you book a cruise?? Only want to cruise on ships where COOKIE and Matt are! COOKIE you gave us LIFE!!!!!! you are on your way to Cruise Director.....or President and CEO of FUN
The ship looks like an upscale resort you almost forget you are on the water. Loved it.
Didn't stop in Grand Turk due to weather?? Stuck on ship for 3 days. ONLY gave a $15 credit per person which was very unfair!!!
RUM bar was not stocked with Malibu rum for full day and a half which was disappointing. Bar staff was good though (courteous and friendly).
Dining rooms upgrade really nice. Looks like an upscale restaurant. Dining room food is always pretty basic, hit or miss on entree choices. They definitely need more omelet stations in Lido Marketplace for 4000 passengers.
You could choose to do as much or as little as you wanted as they kept the activities going. Need more options for late night food. NOTE to Carnival: people party then want to eat more than pizza late at night. Need to offer other options. Room service can be very slow when 4000 people want a late night snack.
The staff (waiters, cabin stewards) work VERY HARD!!!! Remember that before you are unkind or rude to them. Honestly don't know when they sleep. They always seem to be doing something. CARNIVAL YOUR STAFF IS YOUR GREATEST TREASURE I HOPE YOU TREAT THEM WELL. Also note to travelers, even though cruising is pretty much all inclusive, it is still nice to leave your waiter, bar staff or room steward an extra tip for good service. They really appreciate it!
Viva la VISTA!!!
