We went on the 7 night cruise and it was really good. We had a balcony suite and it was really nice, but small. The food in the dining room was great, but the food in the other areas was acceptable.
We did not get to stop in Grand Cayman because of the water being too bad to ferry us to shore. We were compensated $25 per person for not stopping. We only went on one shore excursion and we booked it through Cave-Tubing.com. I can not say enough good things about the excursion!!! They were awesome! Our guides stayed with us the entire time. They took us through the cave as a group and the Carnival excursion just dropped them in the water and let them go down on their own and they did not know what they were doing, several of them latched on to us for help. We were so grateful that we booked our cave tubing through Cave-Tubing.com! Our main guide was Kinsley and we could not have asked for a better guide, ever! The entire road trip to the cave, he gave us a history lesson about Belize and made it so enjoyable.
Getting on the ship was challenging since we had to be bused to another location to get on the ship, but everyone was very helpful. When we got off the ship, we chose to carry our own luggage so that we could get on the road, we were in our vehicle on the interstate at 8:30AM!
The dining room did look like an invasion of the pods. The lights were really scary looking.
