The cruise should have been cancelled. Money is the root of all evil!!! The guest that were picked up in BARBADOS should have never joined due to the uncertainty.. the management was not honest.

Couldn't have asked for a better 1st cruise than the one I got. Looking forward to embarking on many more. I got to see and explore islands I'd never seen before and then the unexpected tour of the Everglades was the icing on the already delicious cake.

Hurricane Cruise September 17

Cruise was wonderful in spite of Hurricane Maria. We were safe, well cared for, and enjoyed it immensely. Overall, the ports where we stopped were poor and it was rather sad to see how the people there lived. No industry (25 - 50+ unemployment). As far as the ports we actually visited, Grenada, Barbados, St.Lucia, and Antigua, I would not take the trip. But ship itself, staff, and Carnival were excellent.

Disappointed I never saw the captain. Beautiful ports. Loved exploring the countries we visited. People were friendly. Loved the fresh coconuts and coconut water.

Purchase a (waterproof) camera! We loved capturing photos of our time onboard, as well as our excursions. When we went swimming with the dolphins and kayaking, we were able to take our camera in the water with us, giving us amazing photos and video! Also, bring an air freshener for your cabin!

We brought our GoPro and used it for our excursions and just while sitting around the pool to take pictures and videos! They turned out amazing! I also brought a mini fan to use in the room. Best idea I had!
