It was great to get away from cold, snowy Buffalo and into the hot, sunny Caribbean. We got on the ship early...even before the Embarkation Photographers were set up so we had to take a Lido deck embarkation photo instead. We were on the ship with drinks in our hand before noon...no lines to wait in. My husband, daughter and son-in-law sailed off to the Caribbean for a week. We never had to make a bed, do dishes, worry about laundry, or shovel snow!
Our rooms were made up in a timely fashion in the a.m. and beds were turned down with a welcoming towel animal every night. We asked for an ice bucket and it was filled every day and night too.
I organized a Meet & Greet on the ship Carnival called it a Private Cocktail Party.. Geraldine was very helpful assisting with the arrangements. There were 24 of us from all parts of the USA & Canada who were complete strangers until CC roll call brought us together and we met on the ship. Now friends for a lifefime...from California, Michigan, Kansas, Missouri, Boston, Albany, Prince Edward Island, Texas, Long Isalnd.
Every day was hot, sunny, enjoyable. Even the two times it rained (in PR and GT) it didn't last long and felt good.
However you spend it, make the most of it. It is a cruise...enjoy the sunrises and sunsets and escape reality for a little while.
OVERALL TWO THUMBS UP EXPERIENCE!!
