MV Carousel

Your Rating:Four Stars
Reviewed by: Davina Howitt
# previous cruises: 3
Date of Trip: July 24, 1999
Itinerary: Mediterranean

Defiantly worth while I would recommend this ship to anyone with out a doubt, I am 16yrs old and was slightly hesitant at the time as to how old the rest of the passengers where. The food was excellent couldn't fault a thing, The staff and crew i would give five stars to, very friendly and willing to help couldn't fault them at all especially the the cabin steward who deserved a medal for attacking our cabin every day with four of us 3 being female.

Public Areas
There was plenty lounges , showboat for cabaret entertainment, carousel lounge for family entertainment and midsummers lounge for piano listening up until midnight when the night life began, this lounge was at the end of the ship so it did not cause a disturbance to the passengers cabins. There was a walk around promenade where there was plenty seating, the pool was a comfortable size to dip into for a cool down, I can not comment on the casino as the age restriction was 18.

Food and Service
SIX MEALS A DAY!!!!!!! what more could you ask for? the food was five star on deck and in the dining room, i tended to have breakfast and brunch on deck whilst absorbing the wonderful sun and scenery, I rarely had lunch on board as I was off shore but when at sea I found it very selective , afternoon tea was variable there was a selection of sandwiches and cookies but i found that there could of been more added on some days, dinner WOw what an experience! starter soup salad entrees and desert excellent. The staff where brilliant very helpful .

The cabin was a bit crowded for two parents and two teenagers but I expected that, being a teenager a find the world is a bit cramped for me and my parents!The shower the was plenty room and the overall en suite was comfortable. There wasn't much noise at all except for the radio .

I attended the family entertainment which was in the carousel lounge and the night club, the cruise staff and entertainers were exteremly polite

There was child care facilities during the day and they seemed to have a great time there were two playrooms and all were welcome,on board I spent my time sleeping and sunbathing,and participating in the afternoon entertainment inc deck quizzes and water polo..

Who Goes
I would invite the whole lot for dinner if I had the room, they were all so polite and wiling to have a conversation. I made over 20 friends with teenagers on holiday and we have exchanged addresses and will keep in touch.
