Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

A carnival cruise that was just a little above the normal.  We have taken over thirty cruises on many different ships on numerous cruise lines and know what we like and what we expect.  This is a very good Carnival cruise and I recommend it to anyone looking for a get away.  We did go at the wrong time of the year. And that alone created some problems for us. However, overall it was a good cruise and on that I would recommend.

Very clean. There was some rust on the bottom of our bathroom door jam. We also had a little to much water accumulate on the floor and hall carpet right outside our bathroom. Noise was a concern between 11:00 pm and 1:00 am. However, this room was acceptable for what we chose and what we knew we would get. The room was fine.

It is less than one hour from my house. $135.00 is to much to park our car for the cruise. At that price they should have filled it with gas and a wash and shine.

It poured the rain........what else do I need to say.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Loved the train ride, of course I am a train nut. So, what do you expect? My wife also enjoyed this over two our leisurely ride 3/4 around the island. I do recommend this excursion.

Crew is very friendly and helpful. We were 5-6 hours late getting back to port and disembarking. However, we went out of our way to get a fellow cruiser removed by helicopter and they kept us informed or the procedure and its progress. They saved her life...that is plenty good enough for me.
