Back to cruising! This was out second cruise this year, the Covid year. We were on the Carnival Elation in October.

We chose this cruise because the were giving away cruises and it fell on out 40th anniversary. We are Vaxed, and boosted, and the price was great.

We drive down to Port Canaveral when we leave from here. Much less stressful to get to the port. Parking structure was full. Parked on the prepaid west side lot. We were on the ground floor and just about as close to the terminal entrance as you could get. Vax card was checked at the head of the line prior to being able to get into the terminal. Make sure you have your vax card and ID IN HAND as you go to check in. This makes that process quick. If not, this part of the process will be painful. We were next-in-line witnesses to this.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

We were in room close to the elevators and one floor up from the Central Park (we ended up here a lot this week). This is a very nice room. We even could not fill the drawers, there is so much room. The balcony was large, with two chairs and ottoman, along with a table. Very nice room.

Port Reviews

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

We were last here 10 years ago on the Freedom. Tendered in, and food brought from the boat. We had a fantastic time. Had been looking forward to visiting again ever since. We were on the island (5,300 plus ??, all the beach chairs were taken by the time we got there) with the Independence also. We NEEDED to make use of the tram to get off the pier. However, we waited 30 minutes to be picked up. Could use more of the ship-to-shore trams for those with ambulatory issues. With all the additional people and up charges for quite a lot of the features, most likely will not choose an itinerary again with this as a stop. Food on the island was good, staff and vendors were great. But an amusement park is not what we go on a cruise for.

Stayed on the ship for St. Thomas. Walked the port area for St. Maarten
