Although we have cruised many times, this was our 2 cruise with Carnival. But in short, we, as a Family, had a blast! The kids were highly entertained. Cozumel was super fun! I counted 8 Ships, but later noticed 2 more. Safe to say around 20 to 30 thousand people......The Island was packed. Everyone was having a great time. My husband and I have already booked our 33rd and 34th cruise with Royal in August 2020 and December 2020. Our 35th cruise in April 2021 with Princess. We have always in all our travels, practiced safe sanitizing...and have never, in all our cruising trips have ever gotten sick. I'm now in my late 50's and my husband in his late 60's. I will say how excited we were that on this Carnival cruise, the sanitizing Team Members were constantly cleaning hand rails, public bath rooms, casino slot machines, etc. All 8 family members returned home with no illness. The cruise industry can count on our support.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin 8C

Bad location, I do not recommend this room. Loud walking and banging up above the room. We complained, sadly towards the last few days of our cruise and they did stop the noise for the duration of the cruise.

Port Reviews

Costa Maya

We did go to Jaime's Blue Reef....all inclusive day at the Beach. Blast with the Fam!

Cozumel

We have been to Cozumel many times. Did our own thing! Had a blast with the FAM!

Galveston

We drive to Galveston to get on the Ship. No excursion needed. Nice little Island.

Belize City

Belize is ok. Been there, done that... You are tendered to the Island. My kids went shopping and enjoyed their day in Belize. My husband and I stayed on the ship and enjoyed our day too!
