Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Interior with French Door (obstructed views)

This was our first cruise with Carnival and I have to say that I think it was our least favorite. That's not to say that it was bad, it just did not come up to the standard, overall of other cruises we have been on, this being our seventh cruise.

Embarkation was smooth, but very little information was displayed and the staff did not tell you much at check-in. Other cruise lines issue the room key at check-in, but Carnival have it an envelope at your door which was not told to us until we asked and two different people told me different things???,

The decor of the ship is......... how do you say.................unusual. Very dark and very unusual to the point of being gourde. Not to everyone's taste I am sure. Dark wall panels, lots of ancient style paintings and most of the coulombs were made to look like an urn.

Cabin Review

Interior with French Door (obstructed views)

Cabin 4K

Spacious room and well laid out. The bed we near the window which allows you to walk into space, rather than first getting to the bed. This made for a spacious feel, even if the room was the same size as others.

Port Reviews


Station Pier itself is quite acceptable for embarkation and disembarkation. However the area of Port Melbourne is very compact and when the cruise ships are in it is chaos. Public transport is limited to a 109 Tram and if you are attempting to get to the city it can be very crowded. Cruise lines offer transfers and if you are in doubt I would suggest you use the transfer. We travels to Southern Cross Station by tram and it was packed very quickly. Once at Southern Cross it is an easy train ride to anywhere, or if heading to the airport the Skybus leave from Southern Cross Station.
