I've been on about 10 cruises, this is my second on Carnival.
The food was good, I thought Holland Americas was a bit better.
The room was absolutely wonderful. Very clean, good size, great steward. Bed was comfortable. Plenty of storage space. Good hot shower with a strong spray.
Ports of call were very fun.
The nightly entertainment was just ok. They didn't even have a show one evening. I felt like the entertainment was really geared towards old people!
Ships activities - tons of stuff to do. You can't possible be bored!
Guy's burgers were good. The burrito bar was very good.
One thing in general and this is true on ALL cruises. People are absolute rude pigs at the buffet. Cutting in line, being pushy, acting like they are the only ones on the ship. It is embarrassing! People! Get a grip! There is always food!
We did the Reefs and Rays tour. This was fantastic! Snorkeled over a beautiful reef and then went and to an area with tons of rays. Got to hold them and one gave me a kiss. Worth the $$ to go on this excursion!
Beautiful beach! It was a great day to hang at the beach, do some activities the ship organized... they provided a beach bbq for everyone. Water was wonderful. Bring a camera. You can stand on the beach and the ship in the background. Great photo op.
We went to El Morro. Walked there from the ship on our own. Then through town on the way back. Stopped at shops, got a bite to eat and a drink. Old San Juan is pretty. You can stop at the chamber of commerce and get a map of the town. Also the Frommers website has self guided tours of san juan if you want to print out a map ahead of time.
Did the sail away. Wonderful trip! Great crew, made new friends. Drank rum punch/champagne/beer on the way back. Snorkeling was excellent in St Johns. Saw turtles, sting rays, tons of fish. Nice beach to relax on if you don't want to snorkel the entire time.
