Was everyone aware on the Christmas cruise that two of the three ports would be closed? Part of the fun is seeing what the island is like and that is hard to do when there are no shops or people around. Also our rooms were under the disco and you could hear every song.Well, you aren't going to be at work during Christmas...why should they be?

Same kind of post every year regarding Christmas cruise.
The island doesn't close on Christmas, there are always beaches, right? Were the shore tours still offered?
Carnival Liberty 02/12/06 ( W. Carib.)
Carnival Valor 2/06/05 ( W. Carib.)
Carnival Pride 4/27/02 ( W. Carib.)
Sitmar Fairsea 4/ 1983 ( Mex. Riviera - I was just a little kid!!)
On Boxing Day at Martinique, many of the shops downtown were closed because it was a Sunday but lots were open and we bought some beautiful champagne to have at the supper club. There were taxis again for tours of the island and several of our group also went on the ferry to the beach.
Carnival offered a couple of dozen excurions per port. Sorry you missed out but part of a good trip is in the planning!
Enjoying the Ride!
