We had a large group of 30 people taking part in this holiday cruise. First time sailing out of Baltimore, we found the cruise port/terminal to be very well run, organized and clean. The Embarkation process was seamless and took no more than 20 mins including security.
Once on board, our rooms were ready right away, we were able to set down our carry on luggage and make our way to the lunch buffet! The food options throughout the cruise were excellent, make sure to stop by the Deli and get the Tomato Mozzarella Sandwich (which you can add chicken, turkey or beef to it, as long as you ask). The staff aboard the ship were wonderful, all very kind from waiters, bartenders, room attendants, to our Cruise Director CAM! He was amazing!
The ship, yes is 21 years old, however she is very clean and well appointed. The new livery looks great, and Carnival has done a good job at maintaining the exterior of the ship. Our stateroom was a balcony stateroom on Deck 4. Again the room was clean, a bit dated but well maintained and carried all the necessary amenities. There is only 1 socket, not including the one the TV is plugged into, to charge your phones. We found the ventilation system to be the largest problem as the air was dry and a bit dusty at times.
