If your planning on taking this cruise, you better get used to it! We needed to relax and we did! The cabin was comfortable (6265) and close to everything but the dining room. We navigated our way the first night and it really wasn't a big deal after that. The elevators are ridiculous! People, at some point you just have to wait for the next one! Several times the weight limit light came on and people had to get off. That's just nuts! The Crimson dining room for early seating was nice. We were at a table by ourselves which I have mixed feelings about. We don't have children so we spend a lot of time just the two of us so maybe some company would have been nice. But it was what it was and we enjoyed our meal time together. We didn't enjoy our meals, but our time was nice. Lol...the food is just BAD. Not repulsive or putrid, just not good! The pizza and ice cream helped. Everyone raved about the wok place, so I waited in the LONG line and got some...YUCK! The buffet was ridiculous with weird salads and vegetables smothered in herbs and strange sauces. We did eat lobster and I did get two (which still wasn't enough to feed one person) but I was ok with that! The comedians Eric Schwartz and a black guy from South Carolina who was very funny kept us entertained. The only reason I remember the Schwartz guys name is because it's his show title! Sorry. I won in the casino on the second night and that was it! But I won enough to pay for our trip so I was a happy girl! Drink service, slow everywhere! Pictures weren't as good as in the past, just kinda hurried. Probably because of the four thousand people on board. This one not so great. Just hum drum. Beautiful? Yes. No motion sickness! Yay! I think maybe if we would've brought friends or friendly people with us it may have been better, because they certainly were not easy to come by on this ship! I've never seen this many unhappy people on vacation! I tried to stay positive but at times it was tough. I won't go on this ship again it's just too big, but I think Carnival is way better than NCL in every aspect of cruising so they won't lose me to them.

Stand in line and I'll tell you about my cruise!

Cabin 8A 6265
Roomy and enjoyed the balcony. The closet stinks! I mean literally, it stunk.
