Mikey made our trip memorable! Of all the ships we’ve been on we never remember seeing the director or their name. Mikey will be forever in our good memories

this was awful, the excursion I paid for was ridiculous. didn't appreciate having to pay for items only with my sail and sign card...obviously a way for carnival to make more money. most of the people we talked to stated that of all the places we should have stayed and helped the economy this would not be one. Would have been better and appreciated by the cruisers, would e the rental to be free for those with a sign and cruise card. ( carnival owns this excursion...) More time on Bonaire or on Grank Turk.
