We did the cruise Sept 26th 2009. You will love this ship and the food and shows are excellent. You will see a warning on your Carnival Capers newspaper the night before getting to Limon Costa Rica. Carnival strongly
suggests that you take a tour at this port. Crime and muggings are very common here. So we took the Rainforest tour $89.50 per person. Two hours on a boat down river with Crocs, monkeys swinging through the Rainforest.
It was great and ice cold beers too. Two couples were mugged and lost all there jewelry, passports, cash credit cards. Make sure to go on a tour. Colon Pamama is a Port. Shipping containers
everywhere and a very dirty place. Take a tour. We are booked for December
on the Freedom but Eastern, San Juan, St Thomas, Antigua, Tortola, and Nassau. 5 Ports instead of 3. Have a really great Cruise I hope this helps. Enjoy. Ed
