Taking husband on surprise 40th b-day trip. His two favorite ways to spend a vacation - cruising and drinking wine. We have not been on Carnival in years. How is this ship? There are no suites available. I have choices for balcony on 6, 7 or 9. Any suggestions? Has anyone been on the wine cruise? Are there vintners on board? What kind of special wine tastings, events, etc do they have? I have to make a definate decision very quickly and I am trying to gather as much info as possible.
Are the specialty rest. good and worth the extra$? Does this ship have repeat passanger cocktail parties? Is there a special lounge for suite or past member coctails? (RCCL calls this Concierge Club). I am not sure if Carnival has this or not.
Any help would be much appreciated. This sounds like the perfect gift for him, but I would love to have feed back from anyone that has experience it.
Thanks for the help!!!
