Review summary

The ship is in great shape. There are so many different activities to participate in! There was also a great selection of different foods and places to eat, I feel like the choices have improved over the years on Carnival ships and this cruise had the best yet. The ports were beautiful, we saw two amazing beaches. St Maarten had beautiful sandy beaches and the water was amazing. Bikini beach in St Kitts was also beautiful and had a couple of nice restaurants and bars to visit while we relaxed in the sun. Puerto Rico has many options: we decided to spend some time exploring the old Forts and then got a Pina Colada from the place that claims to have invented the drink.
