Additional details

Sail Date: Sep 2018
Cabin: Grand Suite - 2 Bedrooms

This was a 60th Birthday cruise consisting of 5 women, 3 whom have known each other for 57 years!

We were treated to a suite by the birthday girl (can't go wrong there) and while it was a great room and we loved our room steward Nyomon (spelling?) and the ice show was terrific...everything else was sadly mediocre at best.

Boarding was okay, a little confusing... Carnival Cruises from Long Beach were much smoother whether a suite passenger or regular.

Cabin Review

Grand Suite - 2 Bedrooms

Loved our two bedroom cabin. Very spacious and comfortable. Two bathrooms, the master bedroom bath had a soaker tub! The private balcony was lovely with chaise lounges and a table with chairs. Sadly it was cold and rainy so we didn't take two much advantage but I would if I were cruising in a warm climate.

The signage directing your to which area to go to board was very confusing.
