This was our second Carnival Cruise.  It was just as fun as the last one!  The kids had fun at the clubs and we had peace hanging by the pool! Freeport was a bit dull.  We decided to stay on the boat.  Not the prettiest port to come into and didn't inspire you to get off the boat... Nassau was great!  Bought tickets to Atlantis water park with lunch included, and had a wonderful day! Tip: Bring water shoes for hot pavement, Bring Credit card because it is cashless. Bring waterproof camera!  DO NOT bring towels, they have them there!  The lunch provided was just fine and the drink purchase allowed you to refill the rest of the day you were at the park.  Best money spent on the trip!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Comedians were good. Shows were the same as last year. Not really into Motown. Would rather see a real stage play.
Children's Programs
It was difficult to keep track of where the activities kept moving to, but we managed.
Onboard Activities
Loved the pictures! Loved dinner. Were to busy lounging to do anything else!
Destinations and Excursions
Freeport seemed like a hot long drive to anything so we did not get off boat accept to play a soccer game on the field. ALso The Bahamas always seems to have to much begging for your business. It does not make shopping fun.
Jacksonville, Florida
Easy onto boat. Make sure you have all your paperwork.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Not very encouraging to get off the boat for a long hot ride somewhere where you can't leave if you are miserable.
Nassau, Bahamas
Went to Atlantis! Best money every spent on the family for the waterpark! Tip: do NOT take tour, just get off bus and walk right in. After hitting bathrooms, tour the aquariums youself when no one is there! Then, procede to pools and slide for a blast of a day!


Bring Walkie Talkies, this helped us keep track of our kids!
Plan to take a professional pictures and take many each night to get just the right one! You only have to purchase your favorites!
