Great last-minute Carnival Cruise (booked 2 weeks before 8/28 departure) from Home Port. Carnival works for us

THE POSITIVES:

Great Value especially with not having to pay for flights

Cabin Review

Interior

Cabin 4F

Room 9377 –inside category for 4, very convenient location (Underneath the Lido restaurant). No noise issues, easy to walk up to all action. Room Stewart was awesome With the 2 drop down bunks it was a little tight for my wife, myself and 2 teenagers

Port Reviews

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

AMBER COVE: Beautiful, private and new. We did the Damajagua 27 waterfalls with an outside vender (Actually did 12 of 27 as most excursions do because of time constraints but it was great). Cold, clear green water, 3-4 nice jumps and 3-4 nice natural slides. Amazing. Alot of walking and hiking need to be somewhat fit.

Grand Turk

Just a strip of beach overwhelmed with too many people from the ship. I think it has not fully recovered from Maria in 2017. We walked all the way to the end and laid out in front of Jacks Shack where it was less crowded and the water had less seaweed. I did go out and snorkel by the pier, although pretty deep and clear, not much to see. I would prefer an overnight in Puerto Rico instead.

New York (Manhattan)

New Yorker born and raised - 5 stars. Great Embarkation process
