Was ok not the best Carnival Experience
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Left Miami on 05/23. This was our 3rd Carnival cruise... Getting on board was a breeze we had someone that needed wheelchair assistance. And off we were through security and the VIP desk, process was about 10 mins... Ship was in good order. We had the standard Carnival inside room, not a ton of space but nice, was always kept clean and in order (cleaned 2 times a day). Room steward was very attentive and nice.
Food was on par for carnival, buffett was so so... To avoid all the lines in the buffett area we tried to do breakfast or lunch in the dining room less crowded meals seemed better prepared plus you had decent wait staff.
The cruise director was probally the best of all carnival ships, Butch was his name very entergetic kept people involved..
We had two main drawbacks, the table placement for the maindinign room we were in the silver dining room and had table that was off to the side had a window but no view of the entertainment etc. I bumped into the More main dining room man with the capitan on the elevator I requested another table and got nothing just a smile and yes we are booked to full capacity.
Second issue was the drink service in the main lounge and other areas, it was simply non existant.
Overall not the worse experience ever, but next time we will choose a different cruise line. Less

We used Henry with eeetours. I have to say a super nice guy, very knowledgeable easy to get along with. I will say the tour was a disappointment ... Hery tried to jugle us with 10 other people from another Carnival ship that was arriving later so we went shopping then he was late to pick us up by an hour finally made the tour, the banana drink place had recently caught fire and was closed. We prefered to go to Megans Bay but the other tribe wanted to go free so we went to Sapphire, was of but kinda rocky... Henry had to leave early and take the other tribe back shopping as they were not having an enjoyable time so we were worried he would not return in time; but he did so no issues...
Would recommend just taking a taxi to town, 4 bucks a person, the buying a trip from little switzwerland 25 bucks a person. And you are good to go. But try Megans Bay there is a small fee like 3 USD but its a beautiful place.
Now we understand all the comp...
You get what you pay for - it'...
Take friends and have fun!
Budget cruise that was average...
Not up to Carnival's standards...
Mini Honeymoon gone wrong!
