5 Night Western Caribbean With Carnival Live (Tampa Roundtrip)

Traveled As: Couple

This Cruise was one of the most relaxing trips we have ever experienced.  The entertainment staff were just as friendly as the food staff & servers--our room service, as always, was EXCELLENT.  It seemed that the workers on the ship enjoyed their jobs & it was reflected in their performance.  The incredible talent of the Cruise director was exceptional & he was so humble in sharing his talents with us.  We also liked the unusual dinner choices to experience--never had that before; for instance, the frog legs, gator tail, etc.  We also appreciated the history behind the Skyway Bridge from the Captain  as we approached & also the location of Cuba in our sight range--this made the trip more personal
