There were 9 of us on this cruise, the ages were from 7 to 78. We had 3 generations sailing together for the first time, 5 of us had sailed before and 4 of us were brand new to cruising. The first timers of 4 already want to do another cruise, so we are looking at 2017 for a Caribbean Cruise, 2 of us are already booked for 2016 cruise and it is on one the largest cruise ship in the world and expensive....... The rest want to go on a cruise so we are looking at which Caribbean cruise to do for 2017. We had no problems at all, all 4 four cabins were very clean and neat, the bar service was a little slow at times but we knew a cool drink was coming so we were ok with it. The food in the LIDO and The Main Dinning room was delicious and our waiters were wonderful 3 CHEERS for HAMED, he make us and the rest of our party feel welcome each night. My Mother in-law had fun dancing with him during there little shows they put on and so did the kids. The shows were great, 2 of us signed up for the VIP show and had a ball......... This is not like the 3 night cruise which is a party cruise, we saw very few people who had too much to drink. We have done the 3 night every years since 2001 and sometimes twice in one year. This was our first time doing the 4 night and will be doing it again SOON.......... We had no problem getting on the ship, took less than 20 minutes and our luggage was there by 2 pm. We live local so we had breakfast before we got off the ship when we got back. Only about 15 minutes to get off, get our luggage go thru customs and we were headed home. Read Less

This was my very first cruise back in 1997. I noticed that they didn't show the port we embarked at which was Puerto Rico nor was they year available but I was determined to see St. Lucia's Marigot Bay where they filmed the 1960's version of 'Dr. Dolittle' with Rex Harrison (after attending 6 yrs of vet med and dreaming of becoming a doctor since I was 5 and when the movie came out...I was about 7 and knew it would be a veterinarian because of it lol.) We drove from New Orleans to Miami to visit family before we fly to Puerto Rico to board. This went well enough but living in Vegas for a year...my first impression was that it was as gaudy as the casinos :P No matter. It was about the ports of call and although I felt like a kindergartener getting off a bus for a field trip...I was pleased by all the different places you could see in a 1 or 2 weeks on these things! As bikers, we are used to a lot of freedom so being cramped in what we called a sardine can and having to dine at the same place at a certain time didn't appeal to us. Nor having to come in from play at certain times but all in all...the trip to St. Lucia with its Pitons, Harley rentals in Guadeloupe, and the spice island of Grenada (which also had a vet med there) was worth it (we didn't care for the us virgin islands or other places...we are rain forest, hiking trails, waterfall buffs. I had a beach house anyway so laying on a beach wasn't a vacation to me at that time). I didn't cruise again until last year. Twice. Now it will be twice this year! I am gaining more knowledge on how to use the ship's facilities, book my own excursions if they are sold out or have nothing appealing, make sure we are in a large balcony at minimum, and dining alternatives (although the busy carpeting is an eye sore lol) and realizing the value of these types of vacations!!!! You can't stay at the holiday inn down the road and eat at fast food joints for these prices!! And really....although bikers will say that it is all about the journey....sometimes I'd prefer to dig the destinations :))))) All in all...I wish I did these cruises more when I was younger. I am partial to carnival because of the king bed and a bit larger rooms but would like to try other ships. I believe for the value though...I'll always be loyal to Carnival :) Looking back now that I am older and wiser now Read Less
