Best Carnival Cruise out of Galveston

Sail Date: January 27, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

My wife and I took the first half last year and the second half back to Galveston this year. The stops are just amazing! The Eastern Caribbean Islands are just wonderful. Each stop a bit different giving variety you just can't get with coastal cruises. Unfortunately this cruise will not be offered out of Galveston for at least the next two years, so I was told. If you can find this itinerary out of another port, book it!

Cabin / Stateroom
Club on floor below room. Had 3 or 4 nights of boom boom music till around midknight
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Got to port a little late due to sick passenger drop off and weather. Disembarkation took a little longer that it should have.
Ship Quality
Older ship, has a little wear and tear.

Capt. Bob boat and snorkel is awesome. Book online, not available on ship. You need to be physically healthy enough to get in and out of boat in the water. Best tour to date.
Antigua, West Indies
Grand Turk Island
Not much to see. Snorkeled at 7000 ft drop off and it was very good.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
No free enterprise. Nice beach
Galveston, Texas


Pizza on back deck is somehow delicious? cheap thin crust, but awesome. Guys burger joint is also killer good. Dining room is same as always, (good), just takes longer to eat if you like that.
