Review summary

My first cruise was a wonderful experience. Thanks to the carnival crew for making it so.

Checking in was great because I had a passport but my wife only had here birth certificate. It caused some confusion due to the midwife spelling her name wrong, her married name was different than her birth name, and the drivers license was in her married name.
