Gret time

Due to hurricanes hitting the areas the cruise changed from 5 ports to 4 ports which ended up being 3 ports. More sea days than I had planned for, but I did enjoy and it gave us time to meet several new friends on those sea days

Carnival Paradise

August 2017 - 4 Night Cuba (Tampa Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Paradise

Emotional

I plan on taking this trip again and doing a different excursion but earlier in the day. I fnd that if you had any early excursion you could get off the ship earlier and spend more time in port. Otherwise you have to stay onboard due to the people to people restrictions. They called #'s for you to get off the ship. More and more lines which I hate

Cruise Tips

George Town, Grand Cayman

7 mile beach this time, usually we are at Paradise Dive shop. Used Maxi Taxi Tours & Transfers round trip to the beach

Cozumel, Mexico

Visit this port often and our favorite place is Fretelli's near the ferry

Belize City, Belize

Got on the tender late so we stayed in the port area, shopping & drinking, some members of our group did some tours. Will be back in a week so will do some tours then

Oranjestad, Aruba

We always take the bus to the beach, this time was no different. Also can get passport stamped at the port

Carnival Ecstasy

Carnival Ecstasy

The staff works very hard to keep you happy, so be mindful of how you trreat them

HAVANA, CUBA

I have to give it excellent because I've always wanted to visit. Now it has it's drawbacks, it's time consuming to get through immigration , security and money exchange. Once you get on land the people are so welcoming. We must remember we are not accustomed to some of their ways and embace it and move on. Just enjoy the the people, food , drink and culture I think it's best to take an early excursion. We had late excursion and it rained so we got started late and some places were closed when we arrived. Our host was the best, we had alternate places to go, so got to see some places not planned on the orginal excursion

Carnival Paradise

Carnival Paradise

If you been on much larger ships take the time to find the special in this smaller ship. The closeness so you can meet and greet and make friends with new people. Sometimes larger ships can be so impersonal

Havana, Cuba

Wish we could have stayed in port longer there is so much to see and do. It takes a long time getting through immigration but worth the wait Will come to Cuba 🇨🇺 again

Cozumel, Mexico

Best excursion in a long time Discover Mexico start out with short ride from the port. Greeted by a video tour of Mexico then the real tour begins our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly we were fast friends before the tour was over. Never thought I could learn so much about Mexico in the timeframe of the tour. The rain ritual was amazing I'm referring all my friends that go to Cozumel to take this tour

Miami, Florida

We live in Florida but getting to Miami was a chore, we chose to drive stay before the cruise The traffic was horrendous. We booked off site parking which took forever. This was a Premier cruise for us so once onboard we had a wonderful time

Nassau, Bahamas

Whenever in Nassau by ship we head to Junkanoo beach, always make sure to get passport stamped. We had a pretty large group so everyone really went off on their own
