We chose this cruise because it was near our anniversary. The day we got off ship was our anniversary. We had been on this ship before. We celebrated our 10th, and 20th anniversaries on board this ship when it was the Carnival Triumph. We would be getting off on our 30th anniversary. We had been on this ship on our trip to the Panama Canal just four months before. It was much better when it was the Carnival Triumph. The embarkation went fairly smoothly even though a Carnival employee gave us the wrong information at the front door of the terminal. The rest of the check in went smoothly. Different from the disembarkation. Our stateroom was nice. The service in the stateroom started off nice, but, as the cruise went on it became not good. They even asked if we wanted them to come to the stateroom twice a day or just once? Don't they know what they are supposed to do? Sometimes they came in and put the next days ship paper in while on other days they just slid it under the door. Dining was pretty good in the MDR. The buffett was good many times, but, on others had to bus a table so we could sit down. The pizza was very good. Like the Deli. We didn't actually eat at the Pasta Place or at the BBQ place. The service in the Main Dining Room was better on this cruise than it was on the cruise four months before. Entertainment wasn't bad. Saw many of the shows before. Liked The Flying Scotsman's show even though we saw it several times. Liked playing BINGO. Love playing in the casino. Since we have been to these ports many times we did not take a tour. Walked around near the pier at Halifax. Saw an interesting exhibit at a college at Halifax that had a campus presence next to the Immigration Museum. It was about aging and was put up by an expert in the field. The first day at St. John was a religious holy day for me. The second time at St. John walked to the Marketplace and bought some coffee to take home at The Java Moose. Then we stopped off at the Beaver Tail place to get a bite of local food. The disembarkation from the ship when we got back to port was terrible. They took our luggage from in front of our stateroom. None of the pieces were together. One piece wasn't even near the number it was supposed to have been by.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8D
Don't know what category our stateroom fell into, but, it was a balcony stateroom. It was warm enough on a few days to go out and use the balcony. It was a nice stateroom. The service was good the first few days then got worse as the cruise went on.
