Amazing Cruise

Sail Date: September 11, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This cruise stops at 5 different islands...all of which just as amazing as the last!  All beautiful with TONS of options in regards to do with excursions and beaches.  As far as the boat goes, all of the staff were incredible.  We had a great waiter at dinner, a great guy cleaning our room and taking care of us, there were great entertainers (comedians, pianist, magician, etc).  Carnival aced our table group for dinner.  They paired us with 2 other couples of similar ages in similar situations that we ended up spending our entire trip with.  There could have been a few more activites after dinner when the comedians were changing and the food wasn't as good at the buffet as it was on our past cruise, but overall great trip!

Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was always clean, our bed always made, our agenda always delivered while we were at dinner, we always had fresh towels and a towel animal, which I love! We didn't have to ask for anything except a blow dryer and that was my own fault for not bringing one.
Service and Staff
Warren and Dusan (our waiters) and Gabriel (our room guy) were all fantastic! Matt (the piano bar pianist) was great! Everyone we encountered was great. Everyone was happy and helpful and just very pleasant.
Food and Dining
The food in the dining room was amazing, but the food at the buffet wasn't as good as our past cruise.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Make sure you can find time to check out Magen's Bay!
Bridgetown, Barbados
Castries, St. Lucia
Be prepared to be bombarded by people trying to sell you something everywhere you go!
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Philipsburg, St. Maarten


Make sure to bring a camera. There is only one outlet, so if the ship allows, bring a power strip, if not, be prepared. They do not have hair dryers in the rooms anymore, so be sure to bring one if you need it.
