WOW! One Great Cruise
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The ports of call were very good. We had already been to Nassau, Bahamas but found walking around pretty interesting. The other ports of call were St. Thomas (US Virgin Islands), Puerto Rico, and the Grand Turks. We decided to take our chances on touring the areas without purchasing the cruise shore excursions, which were significantly higher. We weren't discounted. Make sure that you don't accept the first offer. We More got good deals but found that it if you continued walking you would get better deals.
For example, we looked at taking tour of Puerto Rico from the ship (about 2 hour tour was more than $50 per person). However, we got the island tour for $25. Yet, we found out that others got the same tour for $15 and $10. It pays to shop around. However, you got to be careful.
In St. Thomas, we got another deal on a local tour. For 15 minutes (and speeding down the road beyond the speed limit), the tour guide never said one word. He finally made a time at the beach where let some folks out to the beach (they were unsure if he would come back). With the last time, the driver started talking with us and we were satisfied. It appeared that passengers had paid the tour guide money to see different things for the same price. My wife and I came out with the best value.
The entertainment on the cruise was outstanding. Jacque, our cruise director, made the ship atmosphere exciting with different line dances and events that everyone could participate.
We loved the LeeAnn who provided a great sound of renditions from Whitney Houston and Adele. The nightclub was a great gathering place after the Latin music and the ship shows.
Sadly, we were above the nightly activities. We found that out when we went to bed early. We couldn't go to sleep with the noise. Please keep this in mind when booking.
Your placement of the statement room is vital.
We met a lot of friendly people and forged long lasting relationships. The Eastern Caribbean Cruise on Carnival provided a great vacation. I would recommend to others. Less
Cabin review: 8B6367 Balcony
We were on Upper Deck (6th) with a balcony. The room was spacious and the balcony was dynamic. The major issue is being above the nightclub and band on the promenade. It pays to review your stateroom in relations to the ship's entertainment. This is a lesson learned!!!Read All Balcony (8B) Reviews >>
