We didn't expect the ultimate team effort to make Carnival a preferred vessel. We just figured the 7 day trip would be above average. The care and concern for each passenger was consistant throughout the voyage. The food was magnificent! Lines were long for the Mongolian Wok, but ohh, what a treat. We ate dinner in the dining room and the servers were attentive and honest. The recommendations were 'right on'! The employees were proud of their service and food selection. We loved it. 

The safety demonstation was helpful and not the usual bother, although they did request full attention (Thank You). The excursions were low key and enjoyable. provided on time and interesting experiences. A sailing Americas Cup Regatta was through Carnival, and we found that excursion thrilling and exciting.

We recommend getting the $49.00 package with Carnival, called 'FASTER TO THE FUN' that allows you onboard or off quickly. There were other perks with the package that provided VIP treatment. 

We are glad we booked, with our friends, through . This trip was seamless. Thank you for your attentiveness and excellent service.

We particularly liked the entertainment of Carnival actors, dancers, and staff. The comedy was only 'okay'.

We enjoyed the island tour because I had seen St. Lucia 25 years before and wanted to see the difference tourism and cruise ships provided. Tour guide gave a through and beautiful ride.

I have heard that the sailing ships of 'Americas Cups' can switch ports. Look for that thrilling excursion.
