Review summary

From start to finish everything was great. Carnival will take care of you especially to ensure your safety. The decision to change itinerary was no fault of carnival but to make sure we would be safe and enjoy cruising on the beautiful blue seas. I always cruise Carnival, have for 13 years.

It went by so fast. We arrived at the port at 10:45 for a check-in time at 11. We we're on lido deck, drink in hand after checking out our room, which was ready, by 11:30.

casino was like the highlight. I love the ringing of the machines, even though I was playing the one cent slots. So i won maybe a dollar or two at a time, but I did hit for $100, but fed it right back into the machine. The big hitter was being a non-smoker, felt like I needed to get a script for Nicoderm patch but it didn't break me. May have that smokers cough, but oh well.
