This was our first Carnival Caribbean cruise, not one we planned but were asked by relatives to join, which we gladly did. I would not choose this itinerary again. Grand Turks and Nassau were not pleasant at all until we gave up on the excursion and returned to the port, in Grand Turk, and then enjoyed the day in the shops and at Margarataville.

The ship was fine, not fancy at all, we had good service on both the deck and the dining room.m

The food was just so so and we were surprised that at certain times of the day you had to look pretty far for something to eat if you were outside the typical meal times. The Room Service menu was very limited, and once we ordered toast for breakfast and got warm wheat bread, not toasted at all,many no butter,because we didn't realize you had to order butter separately. We enjoyed the casino and the service was good until I earned enough points to get free drinks, then the cocktail servers seemed to disappear. I'm not kidding. We loved San Juan and would love to spend a week there

Cabin Review

Ocean Suite

Cabin OS

Loved our room, large bathroom, lots of storage, wish the balcony was a little deeper but it was fine. The first 2 nights we kept hearing a banging, sounded like it was inside the walls, but couldn't find it. Then we figured out the safe in the cupboard was sliding around so we wedged a bad at the edge and it was quiet the rest of the trip. We would love to have a suite this size next time we cruise.
