Traveled As: Family (older children)

Everything was terrific. A perfect 10 with ONE EXCEPTION. Children ages 8-18 were running around the ship in small groups of 4-12 in number, unsupervised. THey played on elevators, ran up and down steps, held hostage the elevators, and worst of all threw rolls of toilet paper down from 11th floor Atrium to bottom floor narrowly missing passengers and staff and glass bottles in the bar!!! Very dangerous. If a passenger had been hit he would have been severly injured and you would have had to contend with legal action. I paid for and took 9 family members on this cruise. We were happy first few days and considered doing it again as a family next year. But after the last day or two when we saw these roving bands of children running around the ship, if we do a cruise, it will not be on Carnival.

Children's Programs

I know there were clubs for children that were supervised by staff. BUT parents allowed their children to run amok around the ship. Staff seemed unwilling or unable to control them. This is a serious MINUS. And cost you 9 future cruisers.

Not very much to do. too small an island. Maybe if youwanted to open a off shore bank accout it would be OK
