parking at port charleston is a nightmare, expect to wait 1-2 hours in your car, then wait for the shuttle bus, go through boarding and then finally 3-4 hours later you actually board the ship.  the ship is old, small and boring. 3-4 nights the shows were entertaining, the food in all dining areas was very average.  amber cove was great, grand turk was very nice as well. the third stop was missed because it was raining, 30 minutes after the captain announced we would not be stopping the sun came out but we sailed away anyway.  the captains announcements were unintelligible due to his very heavy italian accent.  disembarking was another bad time find your luggage, customs lines (only 3 stations on duty) then waiting for a shuttle to take you to your car.  port charleston-never again, carnival, maybe.  jerry hart , yorktown, va
