Review SummaryMy husband and I were debating between the Carribean and Hawaii. After seeing the prices offered by Carnival for this trip, we couldn't pass it up. This cruise made 3 stops. 1. Grand Turk, a small Island with a few shops and a lovely beach. Be sure to bring your water shoes though, as there is hard rock/Coral on the bottom which makes it difficult to walk. But the water is crystal clear and beautiful. 2. Half Moon Cay, the most beautiful Island with white sand beaches and crystal clear waters. This was our favorite stop on the trip. We were the only ship at port and had plenty of space to kick back and relax. Although, not the hottest topic, its important to mention that the restrooms were EXTREMELY Clean. We were sad to leave this Island. 3. Nassau, Bahamas. This was a common stop for cruise ships. There is lots of shopping and shore excursions here. We did the BlackBeards Sting Ray Adventure. Swimming with Sting Rays. It was a really cool experience. The best part about it was that you do not need to know how to swim. The Sting Rays come right up to the shore!
Carnival made all of our vacation smooth and relaxing. On the ship there was always something to do, food to eat, and relaxation to be had.
Hope this is helpful when you choose your trip. We had a great time both on and off the ship. Can't wait to go back.
