Sail Date: October 2012
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
Well this ship maybe old and small with no balcony cabins but still lots of charm.

Embarkation at airport is a GREAT idea and a must do! Took bus to ship and arrived ~Noon. Wife was in wheelchair and being gold member helped alot to streamline getting aboard.

The ship was in good shape for her age and staff very friendly. The ship seemed much larger than I expected. This was a cheap short getaway for my wife after her bout with brain and lung cancer. Room was OK with large oceanview and close to elevators and easy to get to dining room.

No welcome back party! Just 1 free drink in morning or afternoon and only redeemable in one small off the beaten track lounge!

NO MORE NEXT CRUISE Certificates!! BAD IDEA Carnival!! This is a win/win what are you thinking??

Key West 7:30 AM to 1PM!! No one was awake on the island. Few stores opened till later and little to do except get a drink. Wasted port!

Cozumel 1PM till 10PM again...what are you More thinking?? Too late to do excersion...gets dark by 6pm.and LONG WALK off pier! No shuttles only pedcab...bicycle surry.

At the end of pier do stop in at Three Emigos! Bat=rtender is amazing with drink tricks!

We rented Jeep from Alamo for $65+ insurance=$90. and drove less then 15 miles total...not worth it! Drove to San Francisco beach...Dont go! Vendors wont leave you alone! Must ourchase $10 of food/drink each to use public beach! Less
