I'll write about a couple aspect of the cruise both in general and going solo. For this cruise I got a call from Carnival after looking up some cruise dates and then just putting it off. They offered a great deal and couldn't pass it up. ... Read more

1. Airport check-in at MIA means you can board just behind those with priority. 2. If you want to go to Lido to eat on embarkation day, get there early before everyone else gets on board, or wait until after things clear out some. 3. A ... Read more

We got back from our trip to Cozumel & Progreso on July 26, this entire cruise sucked! It was a total disappointment. From the food to the entertainment. The kids that were on the boat had more fun then the grown ups. Who wants to go ... Read more
