Overall was great. I did find it hard to believe the Carnival Valor we went on January 2008 had the EXACT same shows, same magician with the exact same act, same comedians and same Lido deck activities on our fun day at sea. I mean really we would have chosen a different cruise line all together had we know the only difference was the Islands we ported. ( and that was our choice). Put all that aside, we really enjoyed our family time together.

Mostly great eating.

Always in perfect condition. After we left the room it was like this little fairy would come in and make it all tidy again!!

As noted above, onboard activities were exactly the same as 2 1/2 yrs ago. Get a new set of activities.

I heard the Turtle Catamaran in Barbados was great. I did the adrenaline Zip line in Rain forest at St Lucia. IT WAS GREAT!! BUT the bus driver, Joe #30 bus did not ever talk to us, nor did he respect the fact we were all drenched from rain and his air conditioner was freezing everyone. The employees at the Rain forest asked him to turn it down so we would not be cold on our 30 min ride back to the port, but he said, and I quote, "no". That was the only excursion I did. Everything was scheduled by us on the day of thru external tour groups or taxis.

San Juan, a little disappointing, St. Thomas, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, St. Maarten/Martin were all great in different ways. I was very impressed with TANGERINE tour group in St. Kitts, (tourguide-Kristen?? he always paints his beard the same LOUD color as his clothing!!) He made our day the BEST!!!! Edmund, in St Maarten thru the Government Taxi service was great also. All the family men went on a tour of St. Lucia with "Baptist", thru a local tour group. They were very impressed with him. He was from North Carolina originally. The 3 named above made our trips great. Let me mention the guys who were our tour guides on the Zip line in St. Lucia..... Kendall and I forget the other guys name. But they were fun as well!!
