Worth the Drive!

Sail Date: July 25, 2015

Traveled As: Large Group

We chose to drive to Florida to save money on flights.   We met up with a few friends who had booked last year.  Although the drive was long, it was worth it.  We had so much fun on the ship with our friends and tried to do every activity possible.  The ports of call were really beautiful and we got lucky with the taxi drivers we chose to drive us around.  The food on the ship was great.  I truly don't know why people complain about it.  The service was excellent as well. Those people work really hard and sometimes guests can be rude and ungrateful.  Would definitely do a cruise with Carnival again.

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was a little cramped for four people. I would definitely do an Ocean View cabin next time.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Takes too long so make sure you have something to entertain the kids with
Ship Quality
The ship needs some updating but it's really clean. The guests are dirty...the crew tried really hard to keep up with them.

Grand Turk Island
The beach by the cruise port was a bit rocky. Make sure you have watershoes.
Willemstad, Curacao
Learn the history! It's really interesting.
Oranjestad, Aruba
Some of the locals were a little aggressive trying to sell us things and even charge us to walk us over to our destination. We didn't fall for it. The watersports location by the Hyatt was great and affordable and they gave us breaks.


We did not do the onshore excursions. We relied on taxi drivers who took us places and picked us up and it was just as great. If you're on a tight budget, that's the way to go.
