First off the islands were a lot of fun beautiful and the weather was good for island days. The buffet were barely open. Lido deck quiet not much music or action going on, the cruise director tried his best but I feel he is limited on what Carnival allows him to do. Ordered the drink package barely used it and the one day at sea we did use our 15 drinks, we were told we could not purchase anymore after our 15 limit however we drank slowly all day, and was pressured in the morning to have the bloody mary special so we started early with breakfast. We would've paid for extra drinks so we could have wine at dinner but were told no that we already drank too much. There were many very intoxicated people on the ship falling all over and fighting we were not those people but were cut off. Never purchase the drink package if you may go over your limit.

The stateroom service, servers, bartenders and staff were awesome. The ship outdated small, really needs updated. The communication was poor on the ship as well. The weather was cold and was a rocky ride down and back, however this is not the control of Carnival and you can make your own fun despite the weather. The captain did an awesome job at getting us to our destination and back to the US safely. The food was terrible with the exception of our one day at sea where we found the food to be delicious, that was one day out of 4. Overall it was a good vacation, thank goodness for island days we ate local foods and tried local beers without a limit I am sure we drank more than 15 on those days.
