It was an excellent cruise. Entertainment was great. Don't miss 80's show and Beach Party show. Hasbro show was fine, too...a little kids-ish. Food everywhere on the ship was quite good (in dining room, food quality is good but portions a little on the small side). Shower drained a little too slowly, sink as well. All Carnival personnel were terrific; special praise goes out to Yves, our dinner server as well as to Jerome and Nestor, who served me drinks practically all over the ship. Kyndall was also great. Top 10 of Cozumel excursion was really good; special praise for Barb and her cohort. We were a little confused at embarkation; this time they gave us a special time to show up, and they should have mentioned that you still need to go to area where people in Hawaiian shirts will pick up luggage. Other than that, embarkation was fine and disembarkation was great, too. Weather was sunny, hot and humid....it may be a better idea to go in November, like on my first three cruises instead of going in August. But overall, a great cruise; I would highly recommend it.

A great way to spend a summer week

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Best of Cozumel
    Tequila tasting and tour of chocolate factory were great

  • Submarine Tour
    Nice to see all the turtles and even get to hold one. Underwater sightseeing was nice, but it was at times tough to see anything if you're sitting in the aisle seats, especially with those by the windows hogging them to take pictures with cell phones.

    Beautiful beach....swimming area was pretty rocky in areas; should give a heads-up on that
