We experienced very rough seas. We’ve never gotten seasick before but certainly experienced it on this cruise. Not enough to do with 8 sea days. The marine biologist was very informative and funny. They needed to find additional things to fill the sea days since people couldn’t go outside to sun bath. Comedians could have done afternoon shows. Also movies could have been shown during the day especially since we didn’t have any tv service. Why doesn’t Carnivyonvest in better satellite service. We were entirely cut off from any news or current events. Way too smoky. Service in the restaurants was mediocre at best. The young hostesses were very helpful and engaging. Food overall was good and we especially liked the Captain’s Gala cocktail party and the midnight buffet that was a throwback to cruising years ago. Being a loyalty cruiser with Carnival, we enjoyed many extra perks such as cocktail parties and laundry services.

Bring your seasick medicine with you!

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8A 6207
Very noisy. Outside door kept slamming all night. We could hear the waves slamming into the ship all night. Couldn’t go out on the balcony because it was too windy. Was asked by navigation to keep our drapes closed at night because it interfered with them. So after dark we had to keep them closed. Work men were constantly doing something outside our balcony on some moving device.
