This was a great cruise experience.   I've cruised before in RC but hubby had not.  He started the cruise negative and certain he would not enjoy himself.  Two days in he was sold and looking forward to cruising again soon!!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was great, small but functional. There were three of us and we each had enough space to navigate.

Ship Tip

We were a large group and we always found space to sit together. We made space on the pool deck did a leisure afternoon of suncatching and whatever specialty drinks wee on tap for the day! Covar is the best batman Carnival has.

Take an excursion in order to really get the history of the island.

If you like silver jewelry you will love the silver jewelry store in the square. Reasonable prices and friendly staff.
