Because I'm at Disney twice a year and because I don't like to fly just to get on my cruise, I booked this as a short trip for me and my adult children between days at Disney. I have some pretty severe back issues, and had reserved a scooter on embarkation. I also advised CCL that I had a CPAP unit. The price I paid was excellent for 3 people in an Ocean Suite.We are veteran cruisers of several Mass market lines, RCCL, NCL and Carnival. My thinking has always been that Carnival puts out a decent product at a fair price, tho one needs to be mindful of school schedules, spring breaks and shorter trips as your cruisemates change!
Embarkation was amazingly quick and accommodating, as we were in a suite - NOT due to scooter/disability, etc. Carnival really has their act together at Port Canaveral! I will say I was asked 3x before boarding about my CPAP machine and my need for an extension cord, tho I never even requested one! This was followed by a call from Guest Services and a visit from the Supervisor of Stewards!!LOL - And I had brought my own!
The ship was clean, yes, a bit worn here and there, but always crewmembers to be seen fixing and freshening, wiping and tidying. We made our way to Happy Hour at the Casino Bar and enjoyed champagne with some new friends. I also was told I had "Drinks on Us" but only when seated in the casino, not at the bar. I would enjoy 3 strawberry daquiris over the 4 days, paper straws only included upon request.
Spacious, as cabins go, extra dressing room space was helpful, abundance of storage (easily could have packed for 10 days!).Balcony constantly sticky and damp from sea air and needing a wipe down. 2x a day service, tho we hadn't asked.
