The check in process went smoothly.

Once on the boat, the staterooms were adequate - some need for updating.

The food at the buffet was as expected.

Enjoyed the Steak House experience that you paid an extra $35 per person - nice meal & great service.

Enjoyed Guy's Burger Joint - great burgers and many options.

Asked for recommentdations on tours on two ocassions with no input from the Tours Desk - just took a shot in the dark with the tours - Bone Fishing in Costa Maya was nice/good tour.

The bar service in the casino was extremely slow on most ocassions and we paid the $49 each per day for the drink package - with tip of 15% added on top of the $49 per day per person.

There were at least two ocassions where the guest services staff were not helpful.  We ended up depending on the kiosk instead of a live person - very sad.

Boat could not get into Hondurus and credited the port rax of $14 per person - nothing else - we were forcred to be on the boat an extra day - thank goodness we had purchased the drink package or Carnival would have made a mint that day, as I am sure they did off of most of the passengers.

Worst cruise ever and to make it worse, Carnival as not responded to my survey that I completed with them, so poor customer service on top of a bad experience.
