Another great cruise. :)
Destination: Western Caribbean
This cruise was added on, while we were on the Splendor the end of January, taking advantage of the double OBC offer. We had already booked the Conquest a week earlier while on the Dream, taking advantage of the same deal. :)
The Western itinerary is definitely my preference for the Caribbean. It was the same itinerary on the Conquest.
We booked a cheap inside cabin, ended up on deck 7 which was just fine. This sailing was during Spring Break, More no issues affected our cruise. A few times there was brief loud talking at all hours in the hall. Room steward, as usual was excellent.
We did enjoy the Comedy club a few nights.
I had a large OBC (over 1/3 the cost of the cruise) so, I did get some ship shore excursions. The transportation to Tabyana Beach in Roatan was a good choice due to the short port time. This beach continues to be a preference of mine. Plenty of shade and superb, easy snorkeling. Although I prefer going out of Caye Caulker in Belize privately, I booked the Rendezvous Snorkel trip. It was OK, the snorkeling wasn't clear and the water a little rough. You are guided, placed in groups. I went in the intermediate, since I'm a long time snorkeler, and was glad I didn't go in the advanced. I did get a little winded toward the end and having to swim against the surf, but did ok. The guide did give a good "tour" pointing out and naming different sights. But the group was too large and too crowded. There were a few shaded areas which I got a bench at. Worked out fine. I did have over an hour wait for the boat trip back. I am not one to lay out in the sun. ::) In Grand Cayman- I again, went out with my priority vendor- Cpt Marvin. I continue to have excellent trips with them, going out with them about 20 years. I got on the same boat I was on the week prior with an 18 year old cpt, per my request. Another excellent tour. :)
We disembarked early and had little wait for a cab to Miami airport. This was a 5 week trip, that we enjoyed very much. Less
Not impressed with Carnival
