7 Night Exotic Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 15, 2007
Ship: Carnival Triumph
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was quite wonderful. We did not know what to expect because we had read some poor reviews, so we were pleasantly surprised. It did not show age like some had reported. The ports were amazing, and the service spectacular.

Grand Turk was great. It is a place I would go back and visit. The area right around the ship was a little to commercial for me, but it is easy to see the rest of the island is still prestine.

St. Thomas was absolutely beautiful. This was not our first time at this island, but it was the first time everyone on the ship had to go through immigration on board. Even for those people who chose to stay aboard. We booked a shore excursion though an independent booking agent so we were worried we would be late. We went downstairs extra early, but the process was very fast and we arrived on time. We rented a private sailboat through shoretrips.com It was the highlight of our trip. We went to St. John and stopped at two seperate places to snorkel, and the crew fixed us lunch on deck. We were out for 6 and 1/2 hours.
Don't Miss: Snorkling, and if you are not afraid of booking through an independent excursion company this is the way to go!

This was a wonderful place to visit. Because it is the private island it allows for beach play and lounging. It was the best tanning I had all week.
Don't Miss: Get off the boat early to get a chair in the front.

There is a lot of history in San Juan which was nice, but this is where we did most of our shopping. There were some great Silver Jewelry places for family souvenirs.

Pros: Our ports of call were wonderful

Cons: The food and service on the Lido deck was not up to par.
