The embarkation process at Port Canaveral was quick and effortless.
The port building itself was clean and well organized unlike the port from which we embarked for our previous Carnival cruise. All of the staff were friendly and helpful, just as if they had "Disney" training. This was a pleasant beginning to a pleasant cruising experience!

If you enjoy shopping attend the seminars with Peter and Sara, the ship's shopping guides. They provide truly valuable information about shopping in the ports!
