Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

this was our second alaskan cruise and fifth cruise with carnival.  We knew early that Ketchikan was dropped due to propulsion problems, but, this meant more time in the other ports.  weather was excellent, clear blue skies temps in the high 50's.  single most important advice i can offer is spend the extra money and get a balcony.  our cabin steward Siswadi was excellent and always available.  we were a group of nine and all chose your time dining.  food in the main dining room was good to very good, menu options meant carnivores to vegetarians were all happy.  the dining room staff :Beata, Marlena, Joel, and Rommel were excellent.  self serve food on the lido deck was good and always a wide variety, pizza, chinese, burgers, etc.  24 hour self serve froyo and ice cream.  embarkation  was the most pain free we have ever encountered, quite different from the stormtroopers used at port canaveral.   carnival now offers express debarkation $20 per person and you get your boarding passes the last nite as well as your bags automatically checked thru to your final destination.   bring binoculars, and plenty of batteries for your cameras.    enjoy
