We chose this cruise for its great itinerary: Key West, Grand Cayman and Jamaica, mon.
There were enough sea days to take full advantage of the open decks for sunning, reading in the shade, and just people watching. Of course, it helped that the weather was fantastic! April - May and October - November are usually great weather-wise in the Caribbean. (We have been cruising for 16 years and live year round in Fla.).
The staff on Carnival Cruises have always been very friendly and go out of their way to offer assistance and get us whatever we have needed.
Port Everglades (Ft. Lauderdale), is easy to get to and there is great transportation from a nearby Park and Go if you choose not to park at the terminal.
We highly recommend this cruise.

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
It is very well marked, even with construction
Key West, Florida This is always an interesting place, and it's nice to go to a US port.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Nice town to walk around in
Ocho Rios, Jamaica Our only complaint was having to walk thru the "gauntlet" of local, very pushy vendors as we came out of Dunn's River Falls.


Enjoy the dining rooms - the service was perfection!
