Why not cruise with Carnival Cruise Lines
Looking for a cruise line that has everything from great entertainment to stunning views? Why not check out what is on board with Carnival Cruise Lines.
I was invited to be part of a 10 person group from New Zealand to experience the Inaugural launching and sailing of Carnival Legend from Trieste, Italy... She was HUGE there in the port when we arrived off the Eurostar from Milan, very impressive. 3000 passengers plus crew, 20+ stories high, just fantastic engineering!
The launch was successful and she was carefully guided out with an entourage of well wishers on the water all around the ship.
Our first port of call was Dubrovnik which I was very excited about having known some Dalmatians in New Zealand. And it was better than I imagined, the trees growing down to the waterline, the colour of deep green sea, the modern suspension bridge and finally the old town with terracotta tiles, beautiful.
I recall the attention to detail with the furniture like in the 'sports bar' the seats were stitched like a baseball glove, the memorabilia was amazing, the countless restaurants and bars, and the live entertainment was something out of Vegas.
Of course we HAD to get in amongst it being from New Zealand, so a group of us signed up to do dancing, but we didn't realise we would be on stage and in front of the actual entertainers! Well it gave them a good laugh I guess!
All in all I see Carnival being the 'Fun Ship' for singles, couples but also for families. The facilities are fantastic!!!
