My wife and I have been on cruises in the Caribbean and love it! We have only tried Carnival but have been very happy. Our goal is to go on a cruise once a year :)

Carnival Conquest

January 2019 - 6 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Conquest

Just what the Doctor ordered!

There are 4 ports we went to on this 6 day cruise. For us, it felt like we were rushed a bit and on the run a lot. I think we're going to lean more towards 3 ports on a 6 day cruise with 2 full days at sea. One thing that I would like to note is we noticed the Fun Times didn't always match up with the Carnival Hub App. Also, sometimes the Fun Times said one thing and it didn't happen. For example, we were supposed to have the T-Shirt special on one day at a certain time and it ended up not happening until the next day. This isn't a big deal unless you have planned your day :) Also, you will see a picture of the Martini tasting at the Alchemy bar. At first the bartender told me they weren't doing it at the Alchemy bar and I would need to go to the 3rd floor. I go to 3rd floor bar and they say go to Alchemy Bar. I ended up grabbing a Fun Times and showing the Bartender at the Alchemy bar that the event was happening at the Alchemy bar. They ended up taking care of me which is the main thing. I needed the exercise anyway :)

Carnival Vista

February 2018 - 6 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Vista

Overall great cruise!

We had a great time on the cruise. Yes there are some things that we didn't like but it's because we aren't into different things the cruise ship has to offer or the port didn't offer.

Cruise tips

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

Wasn't real impressed with this port. You have to take a shuttle about 5 miles into town to see anything. If you like Old Mexico this may be for you.

Carnival Valor

Carnival Valor

I would recommend getting a ship map and touring the ship after getting on and before Muster. Not too many people and it gives you an idea of what is on the ship.

Grand Turk Island

Loved going to Margaritaville and just enjoying the pool and atmosphere. It can be pricey but I thought it was worth it considering we didn't do an excursion here.

Nassau, Bahamas

I give this three stars because when the CD tells you to be careful because of crime at the port, it makes you really take notice.

Carnival Conquest

Carnival Conquest

The BBQ place is kind of hidden. You have to go on Lido deck and go towards the aft. When you are by the adult pool area, turn around, go through first set of doors and then up the stairs. The BBQ is actually pretty good!

Cozumel, Mexico

We did the Chef Maestro excursion and it was awesome. We learned how to make authentic food and drink!

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

We just love the people in Jamaica and the culture and atmosphere. Yes some people can be pushey. I can understand why. They are a place of poverty.

Miami, Florida

We love Miami. People are friendly and we just love the culture!

Carnival Vista

Carnival Vista

Go to Guy's Pig and Anchor as soon as you board the ship if possible. It is a gem of a place to eat and gets rather busy but it is not busy the first day.
