February 2017 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Eastern
We left on Saturday. Sunday was an at sea day. We are Roman Catholic and take our Sunday Mass obligation seriously. On Monday, we met 2 Catholic Priests on board (there were a total of 4 on board) and yet not one was given a space to hold a service or allowed to advertise for a Sunday Mass. But every day in the "daily cruise schedule" the LGBT community were able to advertise for their nightly meeting. Or "Friends of so and so" meet in room…" I was discouraged that the same respect was not given to our Priests, who could have offered a service to many people on board, for one hour on one Sunday.
I enjoyed the ports. In Amber Cove we rented ATV's through the Carnival's excursions. The people were lots of fun. We also did the zip-lining in St. Thomas, with the "Tree Limin Extreme Zipline company" (through the ship) That was awesome and I highly recommend it.
Not too excited about the food or general care of the ship. We usually cruise Royal Caribbean, and we will continue with RC in the future!
