Room Type: Balcony

We had a wonderful cruise from Boston up into Canada on July 21, 2013. We have always wanted to do this cruise, and it did not dissapoint us. Only downfall was the fog. Couldn't use the pool deck very much. So foggy! The rooms on Carnival are so nice and roomy. Much bigger rooms than on Royal Caribbean or Norweigan ships. Love all of the closet and shelf space for clothes. (Royal Caribbean rooms have no shelf space at all!) I do bring metal hangers, cuz there aren't enough for 2 of you. Only downfall about the rooms is there is only one electrical outlet. Once you have a balcony, you'll never go without one! It's definately worth the extra money. The food was fantastic the entire ship. We ate in the main dining room every night and the 5 of us had a great meal every night. No complaints. Lots of choices for breakfast and lunch on the lido deck. We actually ate very healthy! So many salads and fresh fruit! Loved the mexican station and the fresh paninis in the deli station. Delicious! Comedians in the late night club were great. Always caught that show every night. Great way to end the night. The new serenity lounging areas for adults only are wonderful. Couldn't have been more relaxing. And NO KIDS! Loved it! Did the Duck tour in Portland, Maine and Halifax, NS. What a fantastic way to see the city! Definately reccomend that! Then you still have plenty of time for shopping. I don't care what people say, I love Carnival. We cruise every year and love it! Can't wait to plan our next one!

Took the double decker pink bus tour. Very imformative. Beautiful covered bridges.


Try to book your cabin in the middle of the ship or towards the back. The food is on the Lido deck, towards the back of the ship, so you just hop on the elevator and head up for coffee in the morning. Bring it back to your balcony and wait for everyone to wake up. Couldn't be more peaceful.
