Vessel sails out of San Juan at 10 PM which makes you count San Juan as an additional port to visit since you are sailing from Old San Juan. The selection of the other ports visited is great: St. Thomas, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, and St. Martin are all great ports. During my cruise the weather was excellent and awakening each morning at a new Island made waking up a day to look forward to a new experience. The vessel, though not new, is being maintained well and is clean, well staffed, and the food is good, too.

Ship Quality
Not a new fancy vessel but acceptable condition and a good price for the many ports visited.
Food and Dining
Breakfast food at Lido is Ok. Dinner at main dining room is full of surprise well cooked dishes.
Service and Staff
Enjoy the usual great Staff encounted in Carnival ships, where you are treated with respect and welcome attitude.
Typical cruise singers and dancers shows.
Children's Programs N/A
Onboard Activities
Having 2 swiming pools allows you to select how much activity you want to have either a noisier center pool or an adults only pool in the back of the ship.
Destinations and Excursions
Did 2 tours: Barbados went to Rum Distillery Plant and received an overall view of the island showing us the various areas and neighborhoods. Went to a Batik factory (St.Lucia) where we were sown how the clothes are treated to produce the items. Also visited an old plantation home with period furniture pieces.
Cabin / Stateroom
This was a well located cabin in the back of the ship, good size, and plenty of storage space. Near elevator that takes you to the back pool, dining room, and Lido Deck for breakfast and lunch. Not far from Main Pool, Casino, etc.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Vessel docked in Old San Juan, near Morro and St. Christopher castles. Also near shopping areas, restaurants and other amenities. Sheraton Hotel accross from Dock pier has a great casino.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
The best shopping is done in downton. If you are not on a tour, take taxi to downtown (not expensive).
Bridgetown, Barbados
Again, no activities at Dock area. Need a tour, or a taxi to take you downtown.
Castries, St. Lucia
St Lucis is very pretty. Need to do tours to see the beauty of this place.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Dock area has a few shops but you can walk to town or take a water taxi to get downtown.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
A favorite port of mine. The best shopping port in this cruise. Also has nice beaches and great tours.


Most of the tours should be done in the mornings since being summer by Noon is very hot. Bring plenty of water with you and comfortable shoes and make sure you were a hat to protect you from the sun.
