Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

My husband and I cruised with 5 other couples and we all had a great time. Our food in the dining room was always warm and came quickly. Our dining room staff, Ioan, Nicolina and Vicente were outstanding. They were not only efficient and pleasant, but they were also very entertaining. The head waiter, Ken, was also great and stopped by to visit more than once. He can even sing! The only meal that we weren't impressed with was the first night on the cruise. The food that night was not very good, but the service was impeccable. We tried the other dining options on the ship, too, and we were not disappointed.

We didn't see a lot of the shows, but weren't impressed with the Diva show. We did like the Motown show - Consuela and her band are extremely good.

Our biggest disappointment was the fact that we didn't get to stop at Grand Turk because of high winds. I had read that his has happened in the past, so I wasn't surprised, but I'm really unhappy that Carnival would More build a cruise port that is so often skipped. It seems that this is poor planning and maybe they should consider an alternative. I would definitely not choose this cruise again just because of this stop and the high odds that I might not get to stop there. That makes an 8 day cruise with only 3 stops - not what I wanted.

We liked all the bars, the activities like Karaoke and trivia, and the decor of the ship and except for not stopping at Grand Turk, were very pleased with the whole experience. Less

love the beaches here.

We went to a beach and then shopped a bit in town. Shops close at 5pm, but the shopping was not that great. The ship didn't stop here until 1pm, which doesn't leave much time for beach and shopping. Even though Curacao is a lovely place, we didn't get to enjoy it as much as if we'd gotten there earlier in the day.

We went to a beach and it was lovely. The locals brought us beer but when they brought the bill at the end of the day, tried to grossly overcharge us. Maybe they thought we'd lost track. On the other hand, we had no trouble with anybody not speaking English. On the whole, this is not a great place to stop.
