Review SummaryThis was my first cruise and maybe the last. I saved up my money for this trip and expected to be greeted with friendly faces and quality service. I felt most of the time was spent waiting in lines and being shuffled from one place to another. Not enough time in the ports. Camp Carnival does not offer children snacks, not even the 2-5 year olds. The hours were horrible if you were wanting any time in the afternoon. It seems to be set up mainly for adults who want to enjoy the evenings alone without children. It seemed like everything cost extra money and the hard-earned money you paid for the trip did not satisfy Carnival. They want you to spend more, more more! Very annoying and disappointing. We made the most of our trip and had a great time on the islands. We will stay at a resort next time. Also, the pools were very small and am curious if they could pass a public health inspection at times. At one point, I think there was 75 people in one small pool.

Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Turtles Farm
Pros: The ports of call -- Cayman Island and Cozumel
Cons: Disorganized disembarking and embarking. No water offered or fountains available during that time. Camp Carnival was disappointing for 2-5 year olds. Not really friendly staff or vacationers. Expect Carnival to try to get you to spend lots on the ship.
