Another Great Cruise From Carnival
Destination: Western Caribbean
Let me just say that you absolutely can't beat Carnival for value. This was our 2nd cruise with them and the service and entertainment was consistently excellent. I could not have found a better or more fun vacation for the price anywhere. The staff is friendly and by the second day knows your name and what you like to drink. The ship is meticulously clean and the food was very good. While there were no specialty restaurants, there was plenty of variety. I believe this is the only line that goes to Progreso Mexico, which is a stop worth making. Progreso is a small town of very warm and humble people that are anxious to serve visitors. The prices are much lower than Cozumel so if this is your second stop, you may want to wait for some of your souvenirs. In addition, this stop has an excursion through Carnival to see the ruins at Dzibilchaltun that is a 30 min. or so bus ride from the port. If you don't want to spend your entire day in port on a bus, this is the excursion for you. The More
guides were extremely knowledgeable and fun.
I want to point out that the Captain is a VERY nice guy and held the boat 35 min. past sailing for 3 passengers that were late arriving back. Youtube is full of videos of other cruise lines leaving late passengers- which you can imagine was probably a very costly and inconvenient mistake! While I don't recommend tardiness, I am comforted by the gracious attitude of the Captain and crew and am a tad less fearful of leaving the ship in a strange port.
Would I take this cruise again? Absolutely! This is an inexpensive get-away packed with fun, food and relaxation. Less

Cabin review: 8N1059 Aft-View Extended Balcony
Cabin 1059 (8N) panorama deck starboard side was a good choice. We were close to the elevators and convenient to the pool, casino and some restaurants. We experienced no noise from deck chairs or elevators. I liked the starboard side as it was facing the docks offering a chance to people watch and wave to the ship across from us. The drawback to this room was NO FRIG, but Johnathan our cabin steward kept the ice bucket filled. There was plenty of drawer and closet space as well as an adequate balcony (not a big as an aft extended one- but big enough to enjoy it).Read All Aft-View Extended Balcony (8N) Reviews >>
