Review summary

Carnival did a great job overall. On board activities and services were good. Staff was great. The time on the two island stops was way too short in comparison to the travel time to get there. Is there a survey such as this directly to and from Carnival?

Onboard Activities

Outside activities and amenities good. Cruise industry still needs to manage poolside lounging to avoid all day hoarders.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
singers and dancers excellent. three violinists playing pop classic songs excellent. late night comedian spike xxx fair.

Ports of call

Too slow to disembark; the word was that there was a delay in customs, although customs is usually very good.

Grand Turk Island

too short a stay. basically allowed 3-4 hours max onshore after a 3 day trip to get there!

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

4 out of 5
great lunch provided by carnival on island. too short (5-6) hours allowed on island.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

3 out of 5
Carnival should have arranged some stop to make up for this one being cancelled.
