This was a good trip, especially for the teenagers. Everyone had a good time.

the only exception was that the boys waited until the last evening, around 10 p.m., to play basketball and the court was closed for cleaning. The trip is great for families and the interior rooms have plenty of closet and drawer space if you don't over pack.  We booked our shore excursions through the company through which we booked the cruise and we wish we had booked them through Carnival. That didn't occur to me until we actually checked in for boarding passes. So if you want to increase the actual Carnival shore excursion bookings, please notify the guests as soon as you receive their booking (through a third party) that Carnival has its own shore excursions. This would have been quite helpful as Carnival's Nassau offerings greatly exceeded the choices offered by the company through which I booked the cruise.

I personally hated the movie offerings by the Lido pool. Plus they were extremely LOUD

Needed a lounge for kids 17-19., not just 15-17.

Didn't like the shore excursions through the third party from whom we booked the cruise. Too limited. Everything seemed to be about the Atlantis resort and we weren't interested.

Carnival's choices were better even though we had a good tour guide.

The Bahio Dive Resort was great. We booked this through our booking company, and were not disappointed except the shorkeling left a good deal to be desired. Had to feed the fish for there to be enough to view.
