Grand Cayman/Cozumel cruise
Destination: Western Caribbean
Port of Call: Grand Cayman
We arrived in Grand Cayman at 8 am (7 am Grand Cayman time) we had to take a tenner in to get to the dock which was easy, we had booked a shore excursion through Captain Marvins which I would totally recommend, their boats are very clean, staff very pleasant, and the staff make your experience with stingray island most memorable, and the price is right only $35/per person, they dive down and bring up stingrays, they show you how to hold and kiss the stingrays and they have a professional photographer taking pictures. The excursion's booked through carnival were overpacked and the boat they went on were dirty and old because they were next to us at stingray island. After the Stingray island we went snorkeling in coralreef gardens, amazing, and beautiful!!!
Port of Call: Cozumel
We booked an excursion through carnival called beach and snorkel party, which was less expensive then most of the excursions offered by carnival, it was $65/per person. You board a sailboat and they take you snorkeling in the beautiful cozumel water and then you go to their private island for blow up slides in the water, trampolines, and the most important part, all the marquerita's and beer are included in the price, their were quite a few people on this excursion but the boat was very clean and the staff was very pleasant and funny too! We then went shopping in cozumel after our excursion and got some good buys, don't forget to bargain!
The ship: The ship is very clean and well kept, the staff is always cleaning something, the only downfalls I would say is there i only one pool that is always packed full and you cannot get in there and they have 3 hot tubs, two which are located in the serenity area which were nice and easy to find space away from the crowds. The food in the dining room was mostly good but some nights I wish there was different options. The lobster on lobster night was fantastic and you can have as many as you want! You can order room service at anytime, or you can go to the lido decks for buffet style-always tons of food!
-Well, I hope this helps, I would recommend this ship, but they need to change the shows a little bit! Less
Cabin review: 6BM225 Ocean View
The cabin was a little smaller then I expected, the shower was great, the water pressure was really good!Read All Ocean View (6B) Reviews >>
