Traveled As: Couple

Very well organized considering 4500 passengers. Queing could be minimised if the hamburger bar remained open over the evening meal times.
Friendly staff were very attentive and seemed to have a genuine wish to make the cruise an enjoyable experience.
By far the worst aspect was the two shore excursions.
In Freeport we were taken to a bus drive thru that supposedly held a \"Farmers Market\"
Just stalls full of cruddy souveniers which we could enjoy amid cloulds of diesel fumes from the waiting buses.
Then the Island tour took us to another shopping experience via an industrial area the feature of which seemed to be the Texaco station.
Slightly better only because the buses parked elsewhere.
Overpriced and did not show the areas assets.
Next time google it and go by cab!
Nassau tour was slightly better but we were left on a beach with no shade for 2 hours which was not detailed in the tour description. Shade available if you hired an umbrella for $15!!!
Again, Google it and book tour not associated (owned?) by Carnival
