Service and Staff

from the waiters to the stewards, to the photographers, everyone was super friendly and very helpful. We had the unlimited photo package, and so made it a point to hit every backdrop every night, by the third day the photographers recognized us and greeted us like old friends!

beautiful island, did the full-day tour, should have been advised ahead of time lunch would be at the end of the tour (around 3 PM) and at a cash-only establishment!

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Our favorite port, we rent a convertible jeep from hertz and take off around the island, found beautiful beaches and friendly locals!


4 out of 5
smooth sailing on Carnival's part, only annoyance was a ton of people who got in line for customs before they had their forms filled out, which caused some delays!
