Beautifule ship - very clean and tons of things to do on board. The itinerary was fantastic with four extremely diverse and interesting islands. The stay in ports gave us plenty of time to explore and do everything we wanted to do. The selection of food seemed a bit boring - especially the breakfast menu, but the deli on board served up terrific reuben and corned beef sandwiches. Overall we were surprised as we did not expect the Carnival cruise to be as good as it was. On a final note, the nightly shows - especially singers and dancers were outstanding.

Pros: The super friendly staff

Cons: Nothing - everything was top notch

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Had so much fun here shopping that we blew our budget for the week in just one morning - can't wait to go back.
Don't Miss: Jewelry shopping was outstanding - especially Ajanta at Drakes passage - better than the recommended stores by the ships
Bridgetown, Barbados
The beaches were beautiful - but wander away from the waterfront bars to buy food. The Blue Monkey wanted $16.60 for a hamburger!! We walked 2 blocks away to a little store that sold to locals and got four huge bajan lunches including drinks for $30.00!
Don't Miss: The beaches
While the island was very poor the Wacky roller river tour was fun and very refreshing
Don't Miss: while we did not go the rainforest was reported to have fantastic sites
Oranjestad, Aruba
We had a great ime on the Jolly Pirate cruise
Don't Miss: Snorkeling on the Antiila - a 400 foot long German freighter - Unbelievable fish and scenery
