Carnival spent $63 million dollars on this place and it is really great. Lot's of nice (expensive) shops. Every dollar you spend here bar, resturant, shop goes to Carnival. Everyone in the compound works for Carnival. What a great
money making idea. Two 1,100 foot piers so no tendering I love that. If you forget something on the ship you can get right back on grab it and get right back to your day. The ship is right there a stones throw from the beach.
The best snorkling is at the far end of the beach. The is a small pier with wooded ladders for going in and out but careful they can be slippery. The Carnival site says only the Valor is going there right now but it may not be updated. Here is the main site you can look at. Just click the link below and have a great cruise. Ed
