Our family, Wife two Sons and future Daughter in-law on this cruise, other than Daughter in-law our family cruises on at least one seven day cruise and as many as two three day cruises a year.

Western Caribbean we have been to all the Ports more than once, love the Ruins and Carlos and Charlies in Cozumel, Tabyana Beach in Roatan,never been big on Belize, and like to shop and take it easy in Costa Maya but wind canceled that Port.

The food was pretty typical but you can tell there cutting back on quality in dining rooms, why have a formal nights when you can get better food and wear shorts to Red Lobster.

I also suggest if you book a balcony cabin on sixth floor (6403)check exact location, or when you go out on it you will find a lanai full of people staring at you.

As always most of staff was wonderful dining room staff a little lost at times, Cruise Director, Black Jack Band,Casino Bar Entertainer,and first two Comedians the absolute worst of any cruise line we have been on,last two Comedians, Casino Bar Tenders best Carnival has, Casino seems smaller but my Wife did win $3,800.00 on penny slots.

The ship itself is the biggest disappointment Promenade deck is great but scrap the Dream class design above that, Lido has no room no chairs and if you want to go up to Panorama or Sky decks no empty there chairs either, the theatre screen is a waste unlike on Conquest class where you can watch a movie at night.

As a long time Carnival Cruiser and Shareholder I hope they use Conquest design for the upper decks on there new ships looking forward to Freedom next year.

Cabin review: Balcony

Our Balcony Cabin (6403) was on sixth floor overlooking Promenade deck only problem was there are two lanai`s on each side of boat and one of them was directly in front of our balcony, so during the day if you just wanted to relax on your balcony and fill the breeze and gaze at the ocean you had a lanai full of people staring at you.

Port and Shore Excursions

Not a whole lot to do there, wife likes to shop there but this time prices were more than at home. I have been there 3 times and probably spent more time on the tender than I have in Belize.

Mayan Ruins are a must see for first timers. Carlos and Charlies and San Francisco Beach, you can rent a SUV for $65.00 from Avis or Alamo car rental cruise the Island and get real shopping deals in town.

Anthony's Dolphin encounter is great for young and old then when your done there bus takes you to Tabyana Beach where you can walk in from the Beach. Quite possibly one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean.
