Leaving out of San Juan was a breeze,15 ride in cab to cruise port.Took a nap,walked around the ship .Wasnt Impressed with Carnivals Food in the Buffett at sit down dinners but we were never hungry .Plenty of choices at the night Buffett and found almost same desserts and salads that you get at the main sit down dinner.The good part of this trip was the Ports,one sea day and then 5 ports of call in a row.We had perfect weather and took a cab to the best beachs at each location and brought our own snorkel gear.St Thomas we went to Secret Harbor Beach and snorkeled w Turtles and tons of fish.St Martin we caught a cab to Orient Beach.Barbados we went to Carlyle Bay by cab and there were boats there that offered us to take us to see Turtles and Shipwreck.In St Lucia we did a Island Tour w Spencer Ambrose,highly recommend.A lot of travelers expressed that Carnival offered the best bang for their buck.I think It was a great trip for the money,don't expect Celebrity service and crowd but for the value it's GREAT!!!
