Great Cruise, But!!!!!

OK, the cruise was really good. But, spend the extra money and avoid the Riviera (Deck 1) like the plaque.  It sounds like herds of cattle are passing by every morning your in port.  If you don't mind noisy, obnoxious people passing by waking you up every morning, then Deck 1 is for you.

Cozumel was great.  Mr. Sancho (free admit, nice beach, $40 RT for a family of 4 by taxi).

Belize.  Mayan ruins were really good.But, the cave tubing is supposed to be good too.

Isle of Roatan was very nice. The clam shell and beach package with the chair lift is very reasonable. Each ticket admits 2 people, so it is affordable.

Grand Cayman was not my favorite. Everything is over-priced.  Do your shopping in the other ports, not Grand Cayman. 


The food was good. I dislike buffets, so I stuck to table service, room service, and Guys Burgers and the Taco/Burrito place.  Also, the pizza was surprisingly good (coming from a New Jersey transplant).

Entertainment was OK, and there really is a lot to do onboard the ship.  All in all, me and my family had a great time.

kenlmhc's Tips

Oranjestad, Aruba - We were concerned at first given the issues we hear about in the news. But, it was great. We went on a trip (non CCL). Got tour bus just off ship. $20pp went on island tour and Beach. I definitely loved it and will go back again.
La Romana, Dominican Republic - Either book an excursion or stay aboard. We went into town and turned around and left within minutes. The people are aggressive and continually hound you for money. It was non stop. The bus drops you in a park full of vendors. It's like walking through a gauntlet of aggressive beggars. Worst port I ever visited.
Carnival Glory Carnival Glory - Avoid Deck 1 when possible. I found the adult sections to be a lot calmer then the main pool.
