Very fast embarkation. We (family of four) arrived at the port around 1:30pm and there were no lines, walked right to our cabin to unload. Interior cabin on Lido deck, extremely quiet and dark made for 8 nights of good sleep. Dining room was not as cold as I remember of previous cruises. Food was good. We had your time dining, no lines; service was very slow several nights, close to 2 hrs. The family enjoyed Guys Burgers, BlueIguana Cantina and Mongolian Wok. Lines were not bad on the Lido for lunch. I actually thought the lunch choices were better than dinner. Breakfast was okay, nothing special on the Lido. Entertainment was just okay. It seems as if Carnival has had the same shows for decades now. Small pools, but we always were able to find a chair/lounger. Kids enjoyed the one waterslide, spent a lot of time in the arcade, mini golf and played bingo. We choose this cruise because of the itinerary.We took a cab to Eagle Beach in Aruba. The snorkel in Bonaire was amazing, one of the best excursions. Grand Turk we went to Margaritaville, adults drank and kids swam in the pool. Wish they would have thrown in one more port, four full days at sea is a lot.
Great port and remodel for terminal 5
Took a cab to Eagle Beach. $20 to rent two loungers, water was nice.
Spend time walking around the port.
