Great family time

Sail Date: June 2009
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Galveston

We loved our cruise!  The ship was beautiful and the people were so friendly!  We did not go to the shows, so I cannot comment on them.  But the cabins were a nice size and we loved our balcony.  What a great way to see the area as we came ond went tof the ports! 

There were plenty of places to lay out around the ship.  The only comment I would like to make to Carnival was that the music was too loud at the main pool.  It was lively and we wanted to be close, but it was too loud to have a normal conversation.  

We loved our dinner table in the Monet!  We had a fantastic view and it was beautiful.  The food was great, including the chocolate molten cakes! 

I have to agree with prior reviewers, it is definetly worth the money to go The Point (Conquest's Supper Club).  It was fantastic!

We enjoyed the casino, everyone had great luck on the craps table!  We also really More liked the Piano Bar!

Sushi in the early evenings before dinner was also a highlight!

We booked our own excursions, using this website and Trip Advisor and were really really glad we did.  We used a private tour guide in Jamaica named Walter Aarons.  He was fantastic!  He took us tubing, Dunn's River Falls and Margaritaville, along with several little stops that we requested.  We loved our day in Jamaica with Walter!

We used Native Way in the Cayman's and it also was great.  We had small group that went to Stingray City, then snorkeling and had a great lunch on Rum Point, which was included in our price. 

We had fantastic time and really enjoyed the extra time in Cayman!

Can't wait to go back. Less

Due to the extra time in port, we had them drop us off on 7 mile beach, which was beautiful!  We just took a taxi back from there, which was easy.
