Review summary

The ship and services were very nice. They need to improve the "munster" process before leaving the original port. Our family's (kids 6 & 9) assigned munster station was in a casino where people were recently smoking and already drinking (loud). We could not hear the instructions over the intercom system. The local staff assigned to the munster station GENTLY tried to enforce quiet and not being on your cell phone but they didnt have portable megaphones to ensure people were quiet. Also, you were not required to bring your life vest (under our bed in cabin) and we never went to the site of our assigned lifeboat.


Also, we told the kids camp that our 9 year old daughter did NOT have permission to check herself out of the camp and one day at the pool early in the trip she shows up to us at the pool (they let her out).

Go to the Dreams resort in La Romana. This was NOT an excursion booked through Carnival we found it on our own. A short taxi ride (15 min) from the port. Hotel has visitor pass for the day all food and drinks included!
