Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
4 of us in there but we made it work. Two organizers for each side of the bathroom door and unpacked right away and put the suitcases inside each other and under the bed. Room stewart kept our room up regularly and went above and beyond spoiling us with treats and towel animals😀

Ship tip

Bring a non surge charger, bring lots of small bills for tipping, try eating in all the areas at least once.

Ports of call

Flew in to San Juan and had a bus ride right to the ship. We only got to visit the Walgreens before boarding. Previous cruise we Visited the fort and loved that excursion that was offered by carnival at the very end of our cruise

Castries, St. Lucia

4 out of 5
We took the trolley train around Castries and that was OK. The the train took us to Vigie beach where we spent an hour enjoying the water and sun. Would have happily stayed another hour at the beach

Bridgetown, Barbados

5 out of 5
This was our very favourite stop. We went to the Boatyard and had a marvellous day at the beach. Got to snorkel and see the stingrays, ship wreck, and giant turtles. Water was the prettiest of colours and the beach was awesome.
