The Best Vacation

Sail Date: July 24, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Excursions were informative and enjoyable.  The Tour guides at each island location provided insight to the cultural aspects of the itinerary beyond what the brochure description described.  We were able to enjoy a more in depth view of the island history as well as current affairs. 

The Cruise Ship Crew members were great and always willing to assist, when needed.  The entertainment was varied and provided options throughout the cruise.  The Cruise Director did a nice job in keeping everyone informed and engaged.  I appreciated the recognition of our Anniversary during our Dining time and the gifts provided by Carnival.  Quite a surprise!

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was small for a suite, but it served our purposes. We enjoyed the balcony. Our Cabin Steward kept everything neat and clean and made certain that we had ice and water in the cabin at all times. We were fine.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
The disembarkation was hampered by the pouring rain when we arrived in port. Too many zones were called at once and the stairs were dangerously over crowded. Call fewer zones at a time in the future.

Be ready for the photographers to take plenty of photos at each port and during the evening activities. It is hard not to purchase them all since they are done in a very professional manner.
