Dreamin it

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Orlando (Port Canaveral)

Drove to Cocoa Beach on Friday and stayed at Comfort Inn and used their Park and Cruise. Shuttle needed work on that we had been told to meet one place and the shuttle went to another, after loaded everything was good on trip to port. Unfortunately the last shuttle was 930 and getting on the boat was delayed by Coast Guard inspection.

We checked in quickly and sat for two hours in lounge area. after CG left we boarded quickly and our room was ready when we got on board. Went directly to Lido after dropping bags off. No real hurry to get to Lido s the food here was probably the worst in 12 Carnival cruises.

Day 1 and 2 were sea days and not very eventful. Welcome aboard show on night one was one the the better shows of my past five. Day 2 show was also good and some new materials made for a better show. Day 3 was the first formal night and as usual you could go no where easily because of photographers. Obviously there are not fire laws on cruise ships.

Day More three was Couzmel went on excursion to Passion Island. great excursion but ride to the Island was rough.

day four was Belize tenders were late starting and getting on them was confusing for those leaving the boat . Weather was bad and many excursions were cancelled.

Day five was Rotaan and a trip t the beach near the ship was a good excursion. Weather was good for the beach.,This was the second formal night as Thursday was Holloween,

Next was short day in Costa Maya. Brother went on stand up paddleboard excursion and loved it even though the water was rough. Rough enough to cancel snorkeling Many of guest and passengers dressed for the day of holloween..

last day and half were normal sea days.

The food overall was average on the Lido and good in the dining room, Service in the Crimson Dining room with angel was excellent.

Service in all areas o the ship was very good. The ship self is not one of the better ones I have been on. Many things in dining room such as drink fountains were not working often.

Areas were continuously overcrowded on sea days.

The entertainment in show area was good though the number of productions were limited. First seating was ok but if tried for late shows it was a maybe to get seated. Comedy shows were a waste in that the length was not worth going in and crowds were heavy and they cleared lounge after each show

Leaving the ship was probably the easiest of my disembarktions Less
