Great Cruise, Great Itinerary, Pleasantly Surprised
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
Food- we all really liked the food on this ship! I have to say that the food here (with the exception of the pizza) was better on Carnival then Princess or any other line. They had great food and a great variety at both the dinners and the buffet The buffet had long lines, longer then any other cruise we had been on but we only ate breakfast in the buffet so it didn't much matter. If you get up early enough and don't feel rushed to get off the boat then who cares about the long lines, you are on vacation right?!?
The ports- they were great! We are total beach people and usually don't do many excursions (at least 2 out of the 4 couples) and just like to find the nicest beach and chill out. We were bummed that Dominica didn't have a beach but we found that we could just walk around do a little shopping and then we found this really cute bar and had some drinks and got this rum that was awesome! and we didn't have a problem getting it back on the ship because its in a old plastic coke bottle so we just said it was fruit juice :) The other ports were great. We had been to St Thomas before so we went on our own to St John. Trunk Bay IS amazing and glad we did go but if we ever go to St Thomas we would just go to Magens Bay since its very similar and less time and money spent to get there. St Kitts was great we all loved it there. Definitely recommend Cockleshell Beach
The overall ship itself- its small and not hard to navigate around. When we did hang out at the pool like after Dominica and sometimes when we got back on board @ 4:30 we hung out at the adult pool in the back of the ship. It was nice but the pool could have been bigger. I think too the main pool was just not big enough. I think cruises should make their pool areas much bigger. The slide was a plus, had never been on a ship that had a slide, it was fun to do. We were thinking that it would be a younger crowd being Carnival but it wasn't. There were a lot of older people on this cruise
The entertainment was decent- the comedians were funny One negative was that there were a lot of people smoking. I had never really noticed on other ships people smoking but it seemed to be a lot on this ship. I think they were allowed to smoke in more areas on this ship or something.
