Great first time cruise for our family

Sail Date: March 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa

Both of the other families are experience cruisers and they picked out our maiden voyage to Grand Caymen Island and Cozumel.

I was very happy with most everything. The food was good, the company was great and our experience was so much fun. I was a little surprised that the pool was so small. It looked larger on the photos. The water was a bit cool so I never went in but the girls went in every chance they could.

When we stopped in Cozumel we left the kidson the ship in Camp Carnival and they were happy about that. As it wasn't very good weather it worked out as the adults toured tequila factories and such and the kids would have probably have been bored.

Will go again, but wish there were varied itininaries going out of Tampa as we would like to try a different ship for a different experience.

Are the other cruse lines that much better? They are so much more expensive!

We are considering driving to Miami and trying the Breeze next time. Less

It was a lot of fun. I loved swimming in that lovely blue water and no sand! (Jumped off the ship)
