Itinerary: Carribean

- Do not get a cabin below the dining rooms. Had noise from the cleaning staff all night long. I complained 5 times to no avail, went up the dining room and asked if they could simply lift the chairs rather than drag them across the floor, they said they would try, but did not. It was REALLY unnerving. However they did offer a cash refund, but I just wanted to sleep!!
- Safe: They want you to use a credit card to activate the safe, but where do you hide the card afterwards?????
- Excursions: It seems that the excursions that Carnival offered had not been researched. We went on "biking through an Caribbean village." We spent over 3 hours on a bouncing bus ride, only to go on a one mile bike ride. Similar issue with the "two Oceans by rail."
-Always trying to sell you things. Sell sell sell. It was like arriving at a port with all the vendors. Even the cruise director on the last night was trying to convince people to buy!!
- Hidden cost: So many hidden cost. Always look twice!!
- Alcohol: They charge soooo much for alcohol. They paint you in a corner, not allowing you to bring alcohol and then charging you so much.
- Yoga: Charging 12 dollars for Yoga!!!!! Yes I paid only because I didn't know.

Food - it was fine, sometimes great other times just fine.

Onboard activities - did not do many, but there were many to select from.
