Ok for a starter cruise by fabdelka

The initial cruise we were supposed to go on was leaving from Puerto Rico and travelling to 5 islands. With the damage from the hurricane we ended up with this cruise (free of charge only paying port expenses) and it was okay for a starter cruise. Taught us a few things about cruising, what to and what not to pack. Freeport was a waste of time since it was mainly industrial and had lots of damage from numerous hurricanes over the years. Only how I would go on this cruise ship again is if they didn't have a day at sea and were going to a bunch of different places.

Hurricane Cruise September 17 by DonnaSkipper

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.

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!
