2nd Carnival cruise, short one to accomodate using President's Day as travel day (little did we know we wouldn't get out of Tampa until Wednesday night!!!!) -- lots of purple on this ship, but you'll ignore it since you'll be spending your time on deck dancing and drinking with good music and great booze. FOOD has been greatly improved. The food in the dining room, in the buffet line, the pizza, ALL FOOD
SORRY---greatly improved. Drinks for the day $2.95, not that expensive. Our 6D cabin was E-259 -- with 7 foot waves, 25 mph wind, and 17 knots, we shook in back. This was our first and last cabin in aft...from now on, i'll nail down a mid-ship cabin. Remember, if you're aft and want to disembark, you have to walk almost entire length of ship!!! Casino was pretty fair -- found a good little 25 cent slot machine, and paid for my perfume purchases with my winnings at roulette table. Met some pretty nice folks, looked like all were having fun. Ship was kept clean, our cabin steward on the ball, kept us up and running very well. Only one problem of any significance. Our friends who had not sailed before, wanted early seating (5:45pm!!!) -- we are late seating folks. Well, we asked for assignment to large table so we could met other folks, and we ended up having a booth for four, and no way to change. You will enjoy the ship and what they offer. Lenny is a little lame, but OK for a CD -- best change on this Carnival ship was the food...and the price of drinks. Remember, when the weather at home is bad (2 feet of snow), you're going to get the remenants of that in the gulf. BON VOYAGE TO ALL, my next cruise is back to the Med, hopefully again on the Millennium.
