There was a juggler that was supberb !! and a New Orleans Motown sound singer as well that are at the top of my list .. the dancers were nice too ... need more day time games around pool area

The falls at Ocho Rhios ... otherwise Jamaica was a disappointment .. The shopping area near port was a huge rip off !! a waste of precious shore time .. shame on you Carnival for insisting this be part of the iteneary for shore excursions ... we hired a taxi and went back in to town for real shopping
Don't Miss: The Falls

Don't Miss: stingrays and snorkeling .... Margaritaville !!
3 out of 5
alot of pressure from locals to buy .. more options for just hanging out ..need shuttle bus at port to take to beach area .. that doesn't cost so much

Pros: ships stability, cleanliness, entertainment , dancing, comedy, convienent port

Cons: chaos during liquor pickup morning of debarking , no mid night buffet

Recommends Carnival Elation? Yes!
