Overall, the cruise was wonderful. Though the ship is older, it is well maintained. Our cabin was clean and comfortable ( sixth floor balcony ). The best part of the cruise was the staff supporting Jase, a really great cruise director. There was plenty to do when the sun got to be too much.  Ken, the maitre d' was excellent and accommodated all of our dining requests. He has a wonderful singing voice. Our waiter, Orlando, was fabulous.  Serenity deck is truly kids at all!   Our cabin steward has to reminded several times to supply additional towels, but eventually he got the program.  The only negative was the lack of exciting ports.  Grand Turk offers a pool or beach.  Freeport is not as terrific as Nassau for shopping.  But I loved the fact that we left the cold north and moved to the 84 degree sunny Caribbean.  I really prefer Carnival over the other cruise lines I have been on because they truly try to make passengers happy .
