First Carnival cruise. 3 past Princess cruises.
Destination: Western Caribbean
Excursions seem like the only way to go if you want to enjoy the stops. We More visited the Grand Palladium resort in Jamaica and it was well worth the money! Beautiful beach with awesome snorkeling, the biggest swimming pool I have ever seen, and very good food and drinks all of which were included. Two thumbs up for the Grand Palladium and Jamaica. Next was Grand Cayman. The water here was crystal clear and so beautiful. The tour we choose was called Allura Catamaran and Stingray sandbar. The crew was awesome, all business, and the stingray interaction was simply amazing! They take you out into the sea on top of a huge sandbar where the Wild stingrays come to eat and play. Definitely my most favorite excursion. The last port was Cozumel abs it was very beautiful as well. This time we did the Chankanaab all inclusive. Although the tour ended up turning out ok, the idea is to scam you orut of a few hours of the 5 hours that were paid for. After the game of cat and mouse they make you play the snorkeling is beautiful but the food and drink are not very good, being you only have a limited drink menu and a couple food choices. Wouldn't do Chankanaab again. Overall I had a wonderful vacation but do not plan on sailing with Carnival ever again. Princess is the way to go if you want luxury, elbow room, and a home away from home. Less
Balcony cabin was pretty nice but a little small. Stayed cool always and was very clean. The staff is wonderful.
Nice cruise. Very clean ship. ...
