We chose this cruise for the ports and mid winter break.
The disembarkation at the ports was excellent.
That could not be said for the end of the cruise at Port Canaveral. Apparently there were issues with the gangplank having to be reset.
After cruising on the Spirit, the Sunshine and the Paradise I would say this one fell short in both the food choice & preparation in the lido buffet, the cabin service and the dinning room service.
We had a terrific time and enjoyed ourselves despite the slamming cabin doors, the marijuana wafting over our balcony, not meeting our cabin stew or being asked about cabin service preferences for am or pm, forgotten dinning room main orders and missing after dinner coffees.
Compared to the outstanding service on the Paradise these made the cruise lack luster.
I thought the CD was very good. We didn't see any shows but did go to the comedy club and the marriage game.. Arriving 30 minutes before any show is a necessity as seating fills fast.
The cabin was just as expected, having cruised Carnival previously.
Main reason for the cruise and just loved the walk about. Very easy city to do so. Only possible issue is the elevation from the ocean to the top of the city but slow & steady no problem. Lots of reno on the old churches is being done. Lovely city and really only about 3 miles of walking to see the fort, cemetery, shops & churches, the red gate & the wall plus statues & famous buildings. Loved the fountains too.View All 182 Walking Tour of Old San Juan Reviews
I now see why everyone loves Grand Turk. We did the beach right by the ship after settling in at Margaritaville. Loved the chair, umbrella,cooler, safe, combo there. Plus the awesome pool, and you can walk out to the beach go for a a walk and a dip and come back to your chair $57 for 2 for the day seemed reasonable.
Loved the beach, swim & lunch. Got a shuttle from Sapphire Beach to here.View All 265 Magen Bay Beach Reviews
Rented Seascooters here and although it was slightly cloudy so fish and coral visibility was poor we had a very good time.Just get off the ship turn right go down the street make a left so you are now around the large building that was in front of you when you departed the ship and there are all the shuttles.View All 41 Sapphire Beach Reviews
It rained and I mean rained but the ponchos & shops were good and a dip in the pool in the rain was fun.
Did this on our own and it was TERRIFIC! The bus tour was exceptional. The presentations are awesome.View All 235 Kennedy Space Center Reviews
