That being said, the food was delicious, the ship was VERY clean, and it was a very relaxing vacation. For the price, it can't be beat.
I've been home 2 weeks and we have already booked another Carnival Cruise for the WHOLE family. We'll see how the dancers are dressed. :0)
As far as boarding the ship on the first day, we found some benches outside and waited comfortably for the lines to die down. Once they did, we flew right through and went straight to our cabins. I highly recommend that idea! Same with the last day, we happily waited on the Lido Deck (in the back) and caught some more rays and snacked on our breakfast until it was time to go. Why rush your exit, right?!?
We did the Zipline and Cave Tubing Experience. GORGEOUS! I loved the 45 minute drive to the caves. The glimpse at Belize living was truly humbling! Belize has a vast array of landscaping. One minute you are in a desert, the next a jungle.
This was our second time to Belize and I am so glad you came back. The cave tubing is a must and the zipline was better than the one we paid double for in Puerto Vallarta. Worth the money here, for sure!
The line to get back on the ship was an hour long. Other than that, we enjoyed the stop.
Right there on the dock is some great shopping. We bought most of our souvenirs there and they were reasonably priced. I'm a fan of Grand Cayman for sure!
