We loved our was wonderful...the crew and staff were exceptional...The crews director, Wee Jimmy, was a blast! The activities crew made sure everyone had a great time....Natasha and Jarad at the Carnival Vacation Club desk were wonderful...if you plan to cruise again you need to ckeck out what Carnival has to offer there...exceptional values.....there is no obligation and no pressure applied to get you to sign on to their package....if you love the water try for a balcony was super...I loved just standing out there watching the sunrises/sunsets and the water....or just simply watch from one of the open decks.... be sure to pick up a deck plan at the pursor's desk it will help to famliarize you with the ship....and be sure to read your "Capors" is put in your cabin every lets you know of all the activities for the next day that will be going on to help plan out your sure to get a fountain fun card if you plan on drinking sodas or bottled water as they are not included in the cruise....and book your excursions early so that you get the time you would like to go....and first time cruisers be sure to attend the debarkation talk..will help you understand the process of leaving the ship to return home..customs...etc...the food was wonderful, in the main dining room as well as the buffets and casual dining available on the lido deck....we did not travel with children bue we did check out "Camp Carnival" Lots of activities for the children and they do give pagers to the parents so that you can be reached at any time....they also have an awesome video game room as sure to check out the duty free shopping available on the ship...excellant prices...we took tons of pics with the photographers on board and you are under no obligation to purchase so take as many as you like and choose from there...and be sure and try out different entrees offered...if you don't like them or aren't satisfied...they will bring you something else to your liking...and be sure to visit the late night dining available 11:30 pm-01:30 cheeseburgers, hotdogs and fries....if you plan on relaxing on the deck..enjoying the sun be sure to get to the lido deck early...the lounge chairs are plentiful but they go fast! Be sure and reserve a video of your cruise at the excursion desk...we have watched ours a few times allready... We loved our first cruise and will be taking another one with carnival in the future.

Loved our balcony room ..don't think we will ever cruise again without one...the housekeeping staff did an outstanding job keeping the room tidy and giving a little surprise every day! Loved the bathrobes supplied and fresh beach towels every day!

Did not do the excursion but heard from several passengers that the cave tubing excursion was awesome...will try this one out next time we cruise....

We went on the jungle beach party excursion..wasn't impressed with the beach area...the main shopping area is awesome and there is a pool right in the middle with a wet bar...pretty cool! Shopping is great here as well

didn't get to see much of this port due to unforseen circumstances...did have to cancel our excursion to Atlantis, which was one place I really wanted to visit...I hear it is sure to check it out for me and let me know! Ths Straw Market is a must see and Senior Frogs of course...if you don't like the crowds or are clasutrophobic just visit the booths on the outskirts of the straw market
Don't Miss: Atlantis/Straw Market
5 out of 5
Great shopping...prices are very reasonable..I shopped the day away...Senior Frogs is a must and a carriage ride if you just want to see the sights and relax

Pros: The ports of call/ Staff and Crew

Cons: Tables on Lido deck cleared but not being wiped off on regular basis/Fellow passenger jumping overboard and not being able to take our excursion in the Bahamas to see Atlantis

Recommends Carnival Glory? Yes!
