This was our 3 cruise with Carnival. Our group of 11 family & friends left from Tampa on Jan. 4th, 2014. Our embarkation was organized and surprisingly quick. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. We expected to have to wait to enter our cabins till after lunch, but no, we invited to settle in at our leisure.The cabin was a perfect size, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was more than sufficient in size. The lunch buffet was great and so many choices. The ship was immaculate. Our room steward was so friendly and helpful, as were the dining room staff. They made us feel welcome and right at home.
The ports were Cozumel, Belize, Honduras and Grand Cayman. The weather could have cooperated more, but it did not dampen our good time. In Cozumel we took a taxi to the other side of the Island and sat on the beach, the weather was an issue so the beach excursions were cancelled. Belize we took a taxi to the the ruins, found a marvelous tour guide. The portage in Honduras was cancelled due to high winds and seas. The next day though was worth the wait. Grand Cayman Island weather was perfection. Our days at sea were fun filled with games of trivia & cards, catching up with the group and making new friends.
Disembarkation seemed a bit less organized but still painless.
All in all we had a great time, can't wait to do it again.
