Review summary

I thought the overall experience was well planned as far as getting on and off the ship.  I would have liked to spend more time in San Juan and cut out one of the other ports.  I would also have liked to have more information about the ports from Carnival instead of the sales pitch for buying more stuff at preferred shops.  (An example in St. Thomas); after going into town and seeing a post card of a tram that goes up a mountain - I finally discovered on my own that the tram was near the ship dock.  We were never informed of anything to do in port other than the Carnival  tours.  The food onboard was good and the shows were enjoyable.  A big problem for me was having to check-in for dinner on a floor different from where I was eating.  I think that practice needs to be reviewed.  The coffee onboard it terrible!!!

Ship tip

Get out and explore the ship. We found a great place for breakfast on our last couple of days (Tasting Bar). It had good food, wasn't crowded, and had a relaxing atmosphere.
