This was our fourth cruise, all with carnival and in my opinion it was the best yet! We joined the ship in Barbados as it was cheaper to fly to Barbados than San Jaun from Calgary. We chose this cruise for it's many ports and it did not ... Read more

Flew to Barbados with Virgin Atlantic (Tinker Belle) from Gatwick in premium economy I really feel this upgrade is worth the extra if you have the funds but the economy cabin on Virgin Atlantic is pretty good anyway. We stayed for 3 days ... Read more

Chose this ship for number of ports visited. They are very keen to confiscate alcohol. Not so keen on returning it. Profits increased substantially last year. It appears the money you are paying is not being used to provide facilities ... Read more
