Review Summary

1st time leaving from Galveston.  Things to know?  Yes, like Alaska only flies in/out 1x/day, meaning when you disembark the ship, you will not be able to get rid of your bags until 2 hours before your flight.  Meaning?  When you arrive at 12 noon, getting off the ship as late as you can, you are stuck with your bags until 3:30 PM!  Warning.  No place to store them in Galveston airport either.  Suggestion?  Go to the Marriott and hang out until the ticket counter opens :)  Our cruise ended up missing Grand Cayman because of too much windy weather so they added another sea day.  Usually fine, but 4 sea days and 2 shore days made the cruise feel a bit unbalanced.  Nothing we could do though. Ship was beautiful, entertainment staff, cruise director (Leigh), Punchliner comedy guests fabulous.  Missed that there isn't an Alchemy Bar, but hear it's coming.  Montego Bay Jamaica tours with Chukka were crazy disorganized, but we still had great fun on zip line, tubing, and horseback riding tour.  But seriously, Carnival?  Have signs up for "each and every" tour you sell!  We spent 30 minutes just getting matched up to a bus for our particular tour with Chukka because there was no specific sign for us to go to.  And the driver was late getting back to the ship, so we did a lot of "suicide" driving on the bus back to the ship...crazy!  But we made it.  Food on Carnival these days in regular dining room is outstanding.  No need for specialty dining.  And 1st meal on board?  Of course, Guys' Burger!  Will be back!

Airlines not set up for cruise passengers. Don't even take bags until 2 hours before flights, so if flights are evening, you're stuck with bags until they arrive and no place to store at airport. Lame. Might reconsider cruise from this port again.

Montego Bay, Jamaica
