I went to Nachi Cocom for the first time and it was fantastic! Thoroughly enjoyed myself!! Taxi prices have gone up, $19 to get there and $20 to get back. It was worth it, I spent all day there, as it is an all inclusive. The place was not full, so not crowded at all. The drinks were good and if you ordered one and then decided to go in the water, they delivered it to you in the water. Lunch was good too. They accommodated me because of the celiac and instead of fried grouper, they grilled it plain for me with veggies, and I got a fruit plate. All good. Met 2 other solo cruises from other ships,(there were 4 ships in that day) and had a fun time with them. I will definitely be coming back here.
Beach day at lighthouse beach. Sunset beach,paradise beach, Bimini beach and another beach were all closed. The only beach areas open were lighthouse and south beach and the one special beach for the yacht club members. The water was beautiful to swim in, nice and clear.
Be prepared to have your temperature taken everyday and wear your mask 😷 just have fun!!
Amber cove is a place carnival made there. Pool, zip line, waterside, bars, food on one side and shopping on the other side. I just did some shopping and went to Serenity deck the rest of the day. Next time I go (February) I’m going to book a tour.
I did a carnival tour called Catalina island beach break. 40 min boat ride to an island and had a beach day. Beautiful island, thoroughly enjoyed it. I strongly recommend doing an excursion in la romana as there is nothing to do in port, except a little shopping at a straw market kind of place there.
Gone are the days of showing up with passport and boarding pass and you are on. Remember to bring all passport, boarding pass, original vaccine card, and negative antigen or PCR test results.
Went to the key west butterfly conservatory. Loved it. The price is $12, but I heard there is a coupon if you buy one you get one free, so $6 per person. Do it you won’t regret it. Wear good walking shoes if you want to walk Duval Street.
2 ships were here. Sun and the Sky were anchored off the island. Found some good shells. Water is nice. There are rocks in the water. They have a zip line for you adventure seekers. I did stingrays city. I’m 5 foot 3 inches tall and the water went to my chest, I say that because I can’t see any kids doing this - the water is too deep. A lady told me that Carnival’s stingrays excursion is better because water only goes to your waist.
More for adults than kids. Deck 10 is under the pool.
This is the oldest ship in the carnival fleet. Built in 1993 it is old. You have to take that into consideration when looking to book. I book cruises for the itinerary, so I knew it was a very old, dated ship. I spent my time at the serenity adult only section on the sea day.
4th time here. I just walked around and down to Junkanoo beach, which has gotten a lot more rocks than my last time I was here. It is not my favorite beach. Cable beach is a better beach but you must take cab or bus or Uber to get there.
I love Aruba. It rained hard all morning. I did not leave ship till 1pm and I went to eagle beach. Sun never came out, but I did not care. Had a palapa and lounger and just enjoy the sight of that beautiful beach 🏝 took walks along water as I did not want to get my cut leg wet. Had fun!!
Walked across floating bridge and did some shopping. Sunny out and really windy. Short time there. Had to be back on ship by 2:30pm and a lot of the stores don’t open till 10am, just FYI. Sat and had a drink in port and watched the waves crash against rocks. Some people got drenched. Curaçao is beautiful.
