Iglu organised our trip and I would recommend them to anyone. The actual cruise was fine. We were not overly impressed with the quality of the food on the ship we were served more than one luke warm meal and on one occasion soup that had actually never been heated. The staff were very apologetic but as it kept happening not very proactive. The ship was very clean, our stateroom was spacious and our cabin steward was extremely helpful. All in all not bad except for the food.

The wife and I have sailed with Carnival a few times and have found them to be great fun. They are much more casual then RCI etc, which is someways is good and in other ways I do like to see people make an effort in an evening. The Casino was buzzing, never seen one so busy. Nice ship, nice staff, food was expected from Carnival. The CEO was on board at the same time, which was interesting. Didn't meet so many people this time as the main restaurants keep focusing on giving us our own table. Met some casino buddies instead which was fun.

Yes had another wonderful cruise. As you know this is my second cruise booked through your company and again the food, entertainment and facilities were excellent as was the service provided by staff on board. I would however like to raise a matter relating to the transfers booked. In particular the transfer at the end of the holiday from the ship to Miami Airport. Details of the transfer are - transfer from the Port to Miami Airport on the 31 May at 10.30am by Super Shuttle ( I think that's what the company is called ) We decided, near the end of the holiday, to book an excursion round Miami for the 31 May and did this while on board. I then contacted Super Shuttle to cancel the transfer to the Airport and was told that this was not booked as I had to call them to confirm I required the transfer. They thanked me for my call anyway.
