I got an opportunity to join my friend on this Carnival Magic cruise going to Grand Caymans and Jamaica. Once I paid on it I started noticing that the excursions where going to Nassau and not Grand Cayman. We call and got changed to Carnival Freedom which was a 6 day cruise. Ok cool. I CALLED Carnival prior to regarding Covid testing and was told we could take the test 72hrs prior to sailing(which was on Sunday). So we did that. Once we got to port, they claim that we had to have it with 48hrs! I was livid because I don' t like being mis informed. That was the trend that was set before the trip and continued. Asking people for things and being turned around was annoying! Also, if you went on excursions, you couldn't take advantage of Guys Burger Shack, Blue Iguana, andGuy's BBQ Joint because it SHUT DOWN AT 2PM! I can say TJ was great and the live entertainment also. My room steward was also great! I also enjoyed my excursions. The food in the lido was soso. The pizza place was outstanding!

We pick this excursion because we wanted to get on the boat and go snorkeling! It was fun. I wish we had something other than Ham sandwiches, being that we was in The DR
