Review summary

The cruise can be summarized by saying there were packs of unsupervised kids running around the ship that were disrespectful and rude. I like kids, but I think it was a snapshot of the way some parents raise their kids today. It made it less enjoyable for those of us that expect kids to be respectful and well-behaved.

Embarkation

Hectic, but no delays. Our room was ready when we got on.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food is not great, but ok. If you're going to have an elegant night, then enforce the dress code. We saw people in ripped cutoffs, workout clothes, baseball caps and on and on. There are plenty of other opportunities to eat without dressing up. We're disappointed that carnival has let it slip so low.

Blush Dining Room

Service was poor and slow, food was cold. Served had much better on previous carnival, celebrity and RCCL cruises.

Nice place to get away from the crowds. Adult only 💯.

Tides Pool

5 out of 5

Much less crowded than the beach pool. Much more enjoyable.

The Fun Shops

4 out of 5

We both order snorkel sets before the cruise. My wife's flippers broke on our excursion. Cherry on Top allowed us to return them, no questions asked, with a full refund. It would have been 5 stars, except for the cheap quality of the snorkel gear they sell.

Beach Pool

3 out of 5

Allot of people, but ok until they had to drain it because someone vomited.

Entertainment

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The breeze is very enjoyable.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin size is nice for two people. No problems with the cleanliness. The balcony could have been cleaner.

Ship tip

Do cruise during spring break, the ship was very crowded with 4700 guests.

Beautiful island, I didn't want to leave. We did the Jolly Roger snorkel with lunch. We had a blast.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

There were 5 ships in port that day. The port area was overwhelmed. It was too busy to explore much.

Disembarkation

3 out of 5
It's never good leaving the ship. We could have gotten of quicker if we are in a hurry, but we didn't have a flight so we you our time.
