Review Summary

Wonderful cruise! Our first time on a Journey cruise. Would like to do more of them. Loved the fact that we had two sea days at either end to relax.

Embarkation was the best ever. Took only minutes to get checked in and on ship.

Most of the shows were great but did not enjoy the hard rock music. Too loud.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Dining room staff was excellent. We were able to get switched to the early seating. Jayson, Phoebe and Blesthea went above and beyond taking care of us.

Ship Tip

Getting from one end of the ship to the other was a little confusing. Get a ship map.

Beautiful country! Took an excursion around the island. The excursion stopped for lunch at a creole restaurant out in the country. We do not eat creole so found a table in the back of the restaurant and were quietly eating some snacks we had brought. The owner of the restaurant promptly told us to leave. We had to sit outside in the hot sun until the rest of our group got finished. I would rather have Carnival pack a picnic lunch and not pick a restaurant in the middle of nowhere for us to eat. This has happened several times on excursions elsewhere but no other restaurant has actually kicked us out. We paid for our lunch but were treated awful.

St. John's, Antigua

Have been to this port before and just shopped. No excursion. Town is dirty and people are very pushy.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Took a boat excursion and watched the airplanes land and take off. Crew was very friendly and accommodating.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

5 out of 5
Took an excursion around the island. Beautiful country but a little scary going around the hairpin curves.

Not as good as getting on the ship. Had trouble locating luggage. Also long lines waiting to get thru customs.
