Everything from the staff and crew, accommodation, food, entertainment, shore excursions, embarking and debarkation, was awesome. Our first cruise and there wasn't one thing we weren't over the moon about. Our cabin was totally beyond our expectations. So much room, a whirlpool spa in the our ensuite, double sinks, all spotless. Dressing room, private balcony with plenty of furniture, such a comfortable mattress and the softest pilllows on the kingsize bed, numerous towels, including a different towel animal everyday, large couch and lovely comfy reading chair. Huge amount of cupboard and drawer space for clothes, cases and shoes. Lots of lights for every occasion, soft and romantic, spotlight for bedtime reading, bright lights for dressing and general use. Ample fridge, plenty of glassware and fresh water everyday. Meals and dining staff were incredible. Food was delicious, wasn't one thing we ate that we didn't enjoy, staff Kostigan, Wayan and the other dining staff in that group, went over and beyond to look after us. Dining room entertainment was awesome, especially, Cathy, the waitress who sang on three of the nights on our cruise. We think Cathy could sing anywhere in the world and get the same standing ovation she got in the Empire Room. Entertainment was great, from the fantastic shows in the Pharaoh's Palace theatre,to the comedian's in the Versailles Lounge, all the soloists and duos around the various bars and the Atrium were wonderful. Loved all our excursions, Mare, Mystery Island, Lifou and Noumea all held their own charm. The staff on the tenders were helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Our Steward, Fredie, went out of his way to be helpful and informative in his quiet respectful way, our suite was always impeccable and the bed made perfectly everyday. Can't wait to go on our next cruise with Carnival and can't recommend them highly enough.

Absolutely amazing.
