This was our 50 th Anniversary trip. We were really looking forward to Aruba And some other Islands that we didn’t get to go to because of The Hurricane MARIA messed up getting to several Islands. The Crew was great and very helpful. It was still a pretty good time but we we can’t control the weather and we made it safe and still had a great trip.

Disappointed in all the changes in ports visited d/t hurricane complications - not Carnival's fault of course, but the reason we booked it was to visit T&C, Curacao, & Aruba. Ship needs a little updating & freshening up.

Our cruise changed itinerary twice. In the end, only one out of four of our original ports was kept. When our most prized port, the one we really bought the cruise for - Turk and Caicos - was cancelled due to hurricane damage, we were hoping to be given the opportunity to cancel. Since we didn’t have the option, we had to go on the cruise or lose our money, including airfare. While we were on the boat, another route change occurred. This time we were rerouted to Ocho Rios Jamaica and Grand Cayman, both of which we had already been to before. The route change did not make sense from a risk-avoidance standpoint. The change actually put us closer to Maria’s path instead of farther away from it! Curacao and Aruba are much further west than Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman and therefore farther away from Hurricane Maria’s path! Everyone we had talked to suspected that the change was to save money, not to avoid Hurricane Maria! Carnival took advantage of the hurricane threat to save money by sailing a much shorter route. The detour destinations were a cheaper substitute than the itinerary we purchased. We therefore feel cheated by the cruise line! Food and service on board were good, but the Music was sub-par. Every one of the bands, except for the Hispaniola Duo played for themselves rather than their customers they were supposed to entertain. Example, it was all 80’s music, very oldie, moldy, and they played the same thing over and over again. Example: We requested a romantic tune for dancing, and ten couples got up to dance. Instead of taking the cue, they went right back to the playlist they had after the requested song, making no changes to encourage the customers to dance. Very immature performers! The worst we have seen on any cruise and this is our 10th cruise!

I forgot one last tour we took. It was the 'Behind the Scene's' tour. Awesome, awesome, awesome! This was worth the price we paid. We got to see where the crew goes & how they live, how the ship runs, where the food is prepared and met the Captain. This is a must do tour!
