Wonderful Honeymoon Cruise
Destination: Western Caribbean
We spent plenty of time in the casino during the cruise because we love to play Blackjack. Don't forget to get your $5 match play cards every time you order a drink from the Shogun Casino Bar. I More played in one of the Blackjack Tournaments, but just didn't get the cards. Oh well, we just about broke even for the week.
We thought that the entertainment on the ship was great! Far From Over was a fantastic production! Our Cruise Director, Big Tex, tried very hard, but I think that the rest of the entertainment staff was more enthusiastic overall. The deck and pool games were lots of fun. I helped the male team win the deck games on the last day at sea (I was the splits guy).
We went to Scarletts Steakhouse on Wednesday night. It was the dining highlight on the cruise. $30 per person for a 5-course meal...GREAT DEAL! Next time we will do the Chef's Table. We went to all of the buffets and made extensive use of Room Service (it was our honeymoon).
I even played Carnival Laser Tag in the Ivanhoe Lounge one night. It was a blast! Less
Cabin review: JS9205 Junior Suite
Nicely laid out, quiet location, loved the double sinks, plenty of room, would prefer an actual king bed instead of two twins pushed together, small balcony, would prefer if ocean view window wasn't facing a public area.Read All Junior Suite (JS) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
The reef was pristine and the sea life was abundant. We took a whole roll of pictures with our underwater camera. After about an hour of snorkeling, we boarded the catamaran for a nice lunch before our cruise back to the ship.
