Basically enjoyable

Sail Date: May 17, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Stateroom was very comfortable, with enough drawer and closet space. Could have used a lounge in place of one chair on the balcony. Missed hearing announcements in cabin. Can you ban all balcony smoking? Service was perfect.
Dining room was beautiful, but the quality of the food was irregular. Some items were perfect, while others were not. Surprised you charge extra for Capuchino. Some cruise lines bring in a local cook to prepare some authentic local dishes. The service personnel were great - friendly, courteous, attentive and
knowledgeable. Your Lido buffets were excellent, good variety and very tasty food. Would have enjoyed some real sushi though.
Really enjoyed the ship, but it was near chaos on the pier outside of the terminal.
How about including some "free" trips for VIFP members who qualify? And, what
about giving credit to those who PAY for the stateroom, rather than to those who OCCUPY the stateroom?

Would we travel with Carnival again? Absolutely!
