Traveled As: Large Group

Review SummaryFirst I would like to say how impressed we were with how Carnival handled the Hurricane Irene situation as it neared Puerto Rico. They were forced to sail a few hours early or they would have risked having the port closed on them. This meant having to leave quite a few passengers at port. However Carnival stepped up BIG TIME and offered to put them up in hotels and also fly them out to Barbados which was our first port of call. Another cruise line which faced the same situation, did not do this for their passengers. Because of this my family and friends will always sail Carnival for all of our future cruises. I have also been telling everyone about what Carnival did, they will also be choosing Carnival over the competition. Aside from that the ship itself was great! "Lots and lots to do", great food, and amazing staff.
