Nice Ship and Itinerary!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
We took an Eastern Caribbean Cruise for Holy Week (April 12-19) and had a wonderful time! The ship is nice, with many amenities: Lounge bars, a wonderful coffee bar, pools, water slides for kids and a Video Arcade we enjoyed with them. What really stands out though, is the dining and service. The food was VERY GOOD all around: the Buffet Station had a lot of variety as did the Wok Station (with shrimp, beef, squid and chicken), the Pizza Station at the back was GREAT and the Deli had your all-time favorites (Salmon and bagels, Rubens, Tuna). The all-day Ice cream pumps seem to be EVERYONES favorite, with either cones or dishes! They also offer Frozen Yogurt. The service in these areas was impeccable! I congratulate the Service Manager as he was always there, looking around and keeping his people aware of everything. The Cabins are pleasantly decorated and the Stewards were very serviceable and extremely nice. The Dining Room service was excellent and the Maître d’ and More
Managers were very accommodating to our group of eight. The Hostess on this cruise was excellent. She had everyone entertained and was very enjoyable! The ports of call were well selected: besides Gran Turks, we visited Bahamas and just loved the stop at St. Thomas and San Juan, Puerto Rico! The people at these ports are amiable, we felt safe walking around and Old San Juan is simply beautiful!! Do take the Bacardi-City Tour! It gives you an overall view of the famous Bacardi rum plant, the Condado area and Old San Juan government buildings. Definitely recommend this cruise and itinerary! Less

I love the Balconies because they offer the advantage of enjoying the ocean breeze in the privacy and comfort of your cabin. Ours was very nice and pleasant.
Port and Shore Excursions
Bacardi Rum Distillery
Most of our group took this tour and they came back raving about it. It went to the Bacardi Distillery and then on to a city tour of Old San Juan and the Condado area. They got to see the Capital building, drove by El Morro and got a general view of the most important places in San Juan. The kids loved the tour also. The rest of us met up with them in Old San Juan for a walking around tour of our own.
We took the taxi service at the port and it was excellent. The people are very courteous in St. Thomas and very accommodating. They drove us into town and since we said we wanted to return with the same driver, he just asked us where we wanted to be picked up and didn't even charge us the fare over; he trusted us to pay on the way back! Now who does that anywhere? [Only in St. Thomas!!!]. Walking around the Downtown is easy and has lots of Tax-Free shops. The selection in the stores is very good and they offer just about everything!
Not what we expected.
Small/short and not enough act...
Disappointed First Time Cruise...
Take friends and have fun!
Budget cruise that was average...
Not up to Carnival's standards...
Mini Honeymoon gone wrong!
