I've cruised with several other cruise lines and I still say Carnival is the best. The entertainment was great, The staff was great. They work exceptionally hard to make your cruise experience a great one. The ports were fabulous. The adult comedy shows were hilarious (full house every night).. The people we met were so much fun. There was so much to do, we were exhausted by the end of each night. Carnival is definitely the "Fun Ship". There was something for all ages. The food was good, a liked the variety & the fact that it was available 24hours a day. For those that wanted a more relaxed atmosphere, they had the Serenity Area (for adults only)& an adult only pool area to lay out & relax. Great music throughout the ship, fun games for all.
Im already looking into my cruise for next year. Im a Gold Member.

If you're looking to have a great vacation experience, upbeat & live, Carnival is the place for you.

J J Tour Co. falsely advertised, took our money & ran. Advertised a party boat tour with music, unlimited drinks, & beach. We got none of that. The boat crew informed the the booking agent of our disappointments & by the time we got back to land, they packed up & left. DO NOT BOOK ANY TOURS WITH "JJ TOURS" THEY ARE THIEVES & DISHONEST!!!

Had a wonderful time at Reggae Beach.
