Booked direct with Carnival. Documents arrived within two weeks of booking. Did our own air from Vancouver.
Embarkation and Debarkation were very smooth and quick. Contrary to reviews we read the San Diego cruise terminal is just fine.
We had an inside room on deck 7. Lots of storage space, hanger, drawers etc. no pant hangers we always take out own.
Interactive TV is great. We booked our shore excursions on the second day and received our tickets within two hours.
Dining. We like early seating which we did but felt that 5:45pm was too early. Service good food fine but portions are on the small side.
Buffet was great for breakfast and lunch but for dinner there were not many choices. The buffet layout is superb. Lots of stations and variety. Hot dogs and burgers were good and always available on the pool deck.
Entertainment. We went to all the shows and they were just fine. Your crusing to have fun and enjoy if you relax and take the good with the bad it all evens out in the end.
Casino. Nice layout came away with $40.00 on slots.
Age average would have been 55. Lots of deck space and lounges.
We would sail with Carnival again.
