Let me start by saying we had a great vacation. I personally believe that fun can be had anywhere. We loved the Dream's western route it included all of our favorite ports and we had a blast at every stop. This was our first cruise WITHOUT our kids and we planned on staying out and dancing until the bars closed down every night. On every carnival cruise I have been on there was normally an active nightlife, I guess we picked the wrong cruise. It was pretty much dead after 11-12pm, we were the only people at caliente several nights after 1am. As for the ship, we did not like it as much as the valor or legend. It just left us feeling like we expected more and Carnival did not deliver it with the Dreams layout. After this experience, we decided it was time to check out Royal Caribbean and see what they have to offer. Happy Cruising!
Cozumel: This was our 6th time to Cozumel. Booked the Bar-hopping tour at www.cozumelbarhop.com and had a blast. Spent the day checking out several local bars and made some new friends along the way!
Belize: Cave tubing with cavetubing.com. Loved Yhony and his crew. Caves were wonderful and lunch was great. You cant go wrong spending the day with these guys, great service from start to finish.
Roatan: Hired a driver from ronystours.com went zip-lining and snorkeling could not of had a better day. This is the second time we have used rony and would highly recommend his company.
Costa Maya: Grabbed a cab and went into town. Enjoyed the beach and just relaxed.
