We were on an Ultra Casino event on the Carnival Sunrise June 24-July 2 Quick to process, on board by 11:30 am Pig and Anchor very good on deck 10-still don't have water/lemonade/ice tea there. In cabin 7372 inside-plenty of room, love the usb ports. Close to mid/aft stairs and elevators. Comedy shows were great-could always get in, sometimes had to stand. Loved Chris Williams the cruise director-all about the ship. Also very talented don't miss his show. Don't care for some of the changes-by adding the Taco stand and burger bar took out the aft buffet line. Got very congested there at breakfast but there are many other locations that can prepare eggs, breakfast etc (deli, seafood shack, cucina, etc) Food on the hole was better than our last Carnival ship. We did my time dining, never had to wait. Check in deck 5 and walk down aft stairs to deck 3-Get table with Rachelle she is the best. Very efficient and always smiling. You may see her up on deck doing bar service also. Never had a problem getting a chair-but it was very hot this week and there isn't alot of shade on the ship. Several days we sat by where the DJ performs to escape the sun. Didn't go to spa, production shows, have pictures taken. Went to Steakhouse one night (courtesy of the casino) filet was very fatty by waitress never checked. Had to mention to the hostess then the waitress got an attitude. Being that we were on an Ultra cruise event we had alot of drawings, etc in the casino. We also had 'free' drinks while playing. Biggest complaint is not enough bar servers. Would wait over an hour for a drink as you can't go to the bar and order. Each days more and more people were getting the drinks on us card adding more people that could get drinks. Prob the worst service in the casino. Plus they ran out of everything Corona, Kahluha, Kendall Jackson Chardonnay. Wouldn't have it one day get it the next and gone the next. Maybe when a casino event is going on they need to order more-just saying. On orientated the ship was pretty easy to navigate-we used deck 5 as it went front to back-Liquid lounge (shows) forward on 3/4 and Limelight lounge deck 4 mid ship so used stairs by casino. First time to Bermuda-don't think I would rush back. We took the ferry over to Hamilton ($4.50 token/person each way). Walked around the town. Found things extremely expensive. All of the locals we encountered were great-very friendly and helpful. Returned to the port area and walked around the Royal Navy Dockyard. Water surrounding looked great-you can swim from Calico Jacks at the pier for a fee. We stopped and had a beer at the Frog and Onion brewery and it was about $18 for one 16 ounce beer. I am sure the beaches are beautiful but being that we had 4 sea days we didn't really need more sun. NCL Escape was in port with us and they spend almost 3 days in Bermuda but offer their passengers free shuttle to St. Georges. Our only other stop was Grand Turk which we had been to many times. Laid by the pool at Margaritaville and then back on the boat. Our casino hosts on this trip were Adrian and Jen and were very personable. They were out on the floor talking to guests. We have been on several RCL cruises and the hosts just sit at a desk. Don't miss the Quest-prob one of the best we have seen in 35 cruises. Debarkation was handled very well by Chris the cruise director. If you did self assist you were allowed to leave only when your deck was called-if you attempted to leave earlier you were sent back. Previously it was like a free for all for all the self assist folks-like this way much better. We were off the boat by 9am. Overall had a good cruise, met lots of great people. Don't know if all the changes on the ship were good. The ship still need alot of TLC. I know the additions are about $$-cabins, pay dining venues, etc. No cruise is ever bad-just felt this one lacked due to the congestion in the buffet, lack of servers in the casino, and running our of bar items in the casino.

Pig and Anchor very good on deck 10-still don't have water/lemonade/ice tea there.

Don't care for some of the changes-by adding the Taco stand and burger bar took out the aft buffet line.

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin 4H 7372
Good location, cabins above and below. Could do with a chair in the corner but we just moved vanity stool. Bathroom good sized. Put clothespins on bottom of shower curtain to prevent blowing around. Don't like not as many shelves in closet. Take old gift card for the lights. Safe is 4 digit code. Loved the inside as beds were comfy and room very dark.
