Thriving on the Freedom
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
This cruise was sponsored by Amoena and Breast Cancer Wellness Magazine. It was my 2nd time cruising and I was a little skeptical of Carnival, having read some bad reviews. Boy, were they wrong!
The rooms were great! The food was great! The activities were great! I loved the water slide! Our wait team, Dani and Dewa, not only took care of our food orders, they were entertaining as well! Our room was always clean and well-stocked. We got our towel animals, mints and beds turned down every night. My room steward even went above and beyond trying to get 2 souvenier shot glasses that were stuck together apart. Even he couldn't do it, though.
There were 3 adult women in our cabin and we had plenty of room. There were 3 closets. There were 2 twin beds and the couch converted to a comfortable 3rd bed. There was plenty of room in the bathroom for all of our toiletries. There was never a lack of towels; the minute we used one, it was replaced.
All of our needs were More anticipated and taken care of. Debarkation was as smooth as can be.
If there was anything I could complain about, it would be embarkation. The lines were long and it was hot, not a good environment for breast cancer survivors to wait in. Less

Port and Shore Excursions
The locals, however, are ruthless! You can't walk through the street without getting hit up for money or harassed to buy something. I was even offered marijuana not once, but twice. I don't think I'd go back to Jamaica just because of this.
