I haven't been on a Carnival cruise in about 5 years, I must say the quality has dropped quite a bit. Food was a disappointment a lot of the meals. The ship was totally overcrowded, couldn't move. Try to find a table to eat, can't. Try to find chairs to sit on by the pool, walk around for an hour. Go in the pool? forget it was packed 24 hrs a day as was the jacuzzi's with kids, all day all night. And when tired of dealing with tons of people and cigarette smoke all over, go to the room to rest and kids are running up and down the hallway screaming and yelling. Will definetely not do a carnival again. Even the shows were short, and relied on blinking background and not a lot of talent. The only redeeming night was Eddie Capone, the comedian, I laughed hysterically. He was fantastic. Overall, was disappointed and will wait till I can afford a really great cruise on a better line!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
not great like I said, a few meals were good, but some things I coudn't even eat, their cheese cake looked fake and felt like rubber, the taste was discusting and I could go on and on about other dishes
Service and Staff
MOst of them were nice but a lot of them smile then they turn their head and you can tell they aren't happy. Some were actually happy like our porter Mariano, he was a doll.
really not great and hardly anything except games. The last day at sea I really thought we would have fun things to do and it was the same old same old, stupid games on stage, ice sculpting which we couldn't see since everyone was standing in front of it. Over all sucked
Children's Programs don't have little kids but there were so many of them running around
Onboard Activities
boring! Yawn...
Destinations and Excursions
they were expensive, but I loved Belize and snorkeling and the 3 stops we made, our guide was fantastic it was an amazing experience. Honduras is totally build up now thanks to Carnival, so not like it was. Costa Maya the beach was beautiful and service good but it's so annoying that the whole time you sit there at a table there are people trying to sell you something, literally all day can't even hold a conversation
Cabin / Stateroom
definitely does not look like that picture, it was extremely tight and me and my mom kept bumping into each other. Very squishy and bed sucked, had a backache everyday.
Miami, Florida
I stayed the night, since my mom was never in Miami, stayed in south beach, not her style but I love Miami
Cozumel, Mexico
we went on the tour to the mayan village and how they live it was very interesting and our tour guide was the best. She is Mayan so is passionate about it.
Belize City, Belize
snorkeling for an hour seeing sting rays and all the fish and coral. Then going to the beach for rum punch and ceviche, people there really nice.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
took the "magical chair" for $12. you can walk for 6 minutes to the beach, unless you really can't walk don't waste the money. Had a hard time finding a chair to sit on at the beach and the weather wasn't cooperating all day so basically walked around their village, kind of boring but got a chair at some point and just relaxed
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
The beach is beautiful, our waiter was really nice, the only thing I hated was the constant people trying to sell something all day, literally every minute someone comes over to sell you something, I understand they are trying to make a living it's just a lot when you are there 5 hours


Don't do the buffet for breakfast, the food is not good if you can get to the dining room before 9 it ends then, that's your best option. Servers not that nice in morning but food better.
