Sail Date: Jan 2018
Cabin: Balcony

SERVICE AND STAFF - Mayura and Gede were great cabin stewards. Any request was immediately taken care of, and our cabin was always neat and clean. Once a day cleaning was during our dinner seating and completely effective. Thanks a million to our cabin team!! We had laundry done twice on the cruise and it was clean and carefully folded when returned by our stewards, We even got a nice note from I. Putu in the laundry thanking us for using the laundry. In the MDR, Our head waiter was Komang, with our team waiters Made and Vincent. They were very attentive, careful with our orders, and really fun to have around. Their presence at open seating at brunch were chances to see them outside of dinner, and they never failed to please. The cruise director was fun and kept things moving. The Captain and navigation staff were excellent in maneuvering the ship for the safety of the guests and crew. We went through 100 mph winds and huge waves with no damage and little discomfort to guests. We would love to sail with any and all or these crew members again.

ENTERTAINMENT - Music, stage shows, comedians, jugglers... they were all great. Carnival booked excellent entertainment for our 14 day cruise. They even focused on rock and roll music from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. After all, the average age on the cruise was 67, with many of us a bit older. OUR music!!

FOOD AND DRINK - We mainly ate in the Main Dining Room, with several breakfasts and a couple of lunches in the buffet. The food we had was very good, and the variety was interesting even over a 14 day cruise. We did not feel the need to eat in the steakhouse as we were enjoying the food in the MDR.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin 8A

CABIN - As expected. Carnival ships have generous cabins, and everything was in good shape. The beds are very comfortable, and we love the sea views even when the balcony is buffeted by rain and winds.

Port Reviews

Puerto Quetzal (Antigua)

PUERTO QUETZAL, GUATAMALA - We took the 10 Best of Antigua, Guatemala with Lunch excursion. Moises was an excellent guide and made the best of our time. We arrived in port late due to the heavy overnight storm. Antigua is a lovely old city and worth another visit. Moises was a wealth of information on the history of Central America, the volcanoes in the country, and the Mayan history. I would love a longer tour with him.

Los Angeles

No excursion, just got on the ship. Embarkation a bit crowded but organized,

Cabo San Lucas

Just walked around in port and shopped. We have been there before.

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

No excursion. We stayed on the ship as we have been to Grand Cayman a number of times and we wanted to relax.
