Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2009
Cabin: Balcony
Traveled with children

This was my 11th cruise on 5 various cruise lines. Have done Carnival twice before. Love the value, the exterior lines of the ships, but not the interiors so much. Have also done 3 CTNs over the years with NCL.

Traveling with me were my wife, 21 year old son, 16 year old son, and 28 year old son and daughter in law. It was her introduction to cruising. Four of us had a balcony cabin while my oldest and his wife had an inside.

EMBARKATION: B We left our home in Jersey City at 10:10 A.M. and traveled to the ship via NY Waterway Ferry each with one carry on bag. Arrived at the terminal at about 11 A.M., Quickly checked in and were given a group 7 card. The check in clerk welcomed us aboard the "Inaugural Cruise". That would be the one and only time we would hear the word inaugural for the whole weekend.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin 8B

Nice size cabin but thin walls. Can hear everything around you. Balcony looks over the Lanai, promenade and a hot tub. May be noisy and smokey. Balcony seemed small. Would not want this location for a cruise in warm weather.
