Sailing on a big ship vs the smaller Carnival ships has it's issues.  Many more people, service staff not as friendly, wait times for anything and everything is longer.  Food was great at dinner. Daily special lunch spots were only open "at sea" days and only for a 2 hour period. 


Dominican Republic was a nightmare.  Roads underdeveloped.  Construction everywhere.  Motorcycle traffic made traveling any where scary. If you were anywhere away from the port you had to travel with a local for safety.


St Thomas was beautiful.  Old San Juan, Puerto Rico is a must see. Lots of history.  Grand Turk is my favorite location.  This was our third time stopping here.  It's very peaceful, beautiful coast line and lots of beach.
