A wonderful cruise!

Sail Date: September 28, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship was outstanding. Can't say enough good about it. The Hotel Staff (booked by Carnival) was rude and we were really disgusted that a tour was listed for the day following our arrival (that's why we came in a day early) and then we were forced to take this tour within an hour of arrival if we didn't want to miss it.. We could have come in 2 days early to get rejuventated to take this tour had we known. This was a really bad start to what fortionately was a fabulous cruise.

Pros: The ship, the staff, the cruise director and the ports of call were all fabulous

Cons: We really were annoyed that after coming in a day early to take the Holy Rome tour on the next day we were forced to take it the day we arrived. We had been up for 26 hours, were jet lagged. The staff was rude and we got off to a poor start.

Ship Quality
Really good. Very clean and a beautiful ship. Couldn't have asked for more.
Food and Dining
Food was quite good. We would have liked more vegetables served witht he entres in the dining room. The fish offerings were very good and well prepared.
Cabin / Stateroom
Wonderful. Our cabin was always clean, fresh towels, and more than expected. Friendly staff was always appreciated!
Service and Staff
Outstanding. We saw conflicts resolved (although not our own) with the greatest of diplomacy and tact. The Ship Staff was very impressive! We can't say enough good about them.
The entertainment was superb except for the commediene. Not only was he not funny he was offensive (and this was at the 10:30 show). We were told by others he was even worse at the midnight show. Thumbs down to him but all of the rest was just great.
Messina, Sicily
Good tour but the lunch provided was not up to par. It was not as good a quality as the others and the serving we got were miniscule. We expected more.
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
This was another of those rush, rush tours and moved a bit to fast to be able to take in everything so we were glad to have time on our own.
Don't Miss: Take time on your own to see this beautiful city.
Venice, Italy
We would highly recommend the Champagne Dinner and Gondola Ride. Loved having leisure time was all great
Don't Miss: The Evening Gondola Ride
Cannes, France
We chose Monaco and were pleased with the everything about the day.
Don't Miss: The casino
Barcelona, Spain
This was a highlight. The city was clean, the guide was great, and we just loved everything about it. The lunch was wonderful. The information our guide shared was really well done. A great tour.
Don't Miss: Mountserrat
Naples, Italy
Expectations were not set. We were told about all the things we could do at this port but had to stand in lines so long to use bathroom facilities we saw very little. More time should be allowed or expectations set. There was way too much pushing us to shop at Isl of Capri. If you were not a shopper this was annoying!
Don't Miss: Didn't see enough to comment
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Wonderful. The people, guide, time allotted....just everything was great!
