jallaway's Tips

Carnival Valor Carnival Valor - It's older and doesn't have all the venues of the newest ships. Just relax and enjoy the ride.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico - Went to Chichen Itza, which means you do not get to experience Progreso or even the Port Complex as it truly is an all-day activity. The ruins are impressive, the experience is not. Signage onsite is either non-existent or very aged. The grounds and pathways (EVERY pathway) are lined with vendor booths from start to end. Not like 10-20, there must be more than 100 booths lined end to end and all appeared to be selling the same machine-made items. Sure, I'd recommend people go to see it - The ball court is amazing; but, be prepared to walk away with a bitter taste of ancient Mayan history.
Cozumel, Mexico - Why would Cozumel have an average of 2.5 stars?? It's safe, it has a great transportation system of cabs and rentals, it has many beaches to absorb huge capacities, and (as Jaques Cousteau once noted) some of the best snorkeling in the world.
Galveston, Texas - If you're bussed into here, you will only see a dreary industrial drive. If you have an extra 30 minutes, walk a couple of blocks over to the Strand. This was one of the economic centers of 1890's Texas and, unlike most Texas cities, the buildings actually still exist.
