Itinerary: Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman

Once again, Carnival did not let us down. Activities from early morning to late night. Very friendly staff. Good food and plenty of it. Can't wait to cruise again.

The food was always good. Sometimes on the bland side and preferred the buffet over the dining room just because of selection. However, the buffet lines were ridiculously long and moved way too slow.

Larger than expected, nice window view.

There were plenty of activities to choose from. I loved the music trivia and piano bar.

If you do not do a shore excursion in Jamaica I advise not to get off the boat. My husband and I made the mistake of thinking we would just walk around and explore. We were hounded by the locals the second we made it into the city. Ocho Rios downtown is filthy and dangerous. We were offered drugs by several locals and could not escape one man who would not leave us alone. We eventually paid him $20 to go away then another $20 for a cab ride back to the boat and safety. Major waste of time and money.

The highlight of my trip was snorkeling in Grand Cayman. Gorgeous island with plenty of activities.
