Review summary

Nice 5 day relaxing cruise. Met nice people at dinner. Staff was very attentive and friendly. We always enjoy our carnival cruises. 🚢⚓👀😍

Embarkation

We had the 11:30 time slot. It went very smooth. My husband needs a wheelchair assist so it's always pretty nice. We went straight to the pool area to relax and had a drink.

Service and Staff

Our room steward was very nice and always had the room nice when we returned.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship seemed to be very clean and well kept despite the fact that the decor was older but the layout was fine for us and we utilized the short cuts etc.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Overall bed very comfy. Size was perfect for the two of us. Plenty of space for our clothes. Always love the balcony to look out of as we enter new ports and to watch the sun go down.

Ship tip

Wow. Can't really say. This was our 3rd carnival cruise. Every shop is unique in it's own way.🚢

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas Did not visit port

We live outside of Houston northwest. We drive in for the cruise. Have been to Galveston many times already.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Always like Cozumel. (been 3 x's). Love the shopping area. We did Fury snorkel and beach. Was not real impressed by the snorkel. Not a lit to see. The beach area was fun. Nice and relaxing. We didn't eat there. Just like to relax and tan.

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

5 out of 5
The tour guide was very good. Had several conversations with her. We did this excursion 5 years ago. Food was good. Pool is always nice. Beach was nice. Drinks were good. Got some shells for my collection. Hubby likes to sit and relax. The games in pool area were fun. Overall a good day. Great weather

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
We have wheelchair assist so it was smooth. Had a nice breakfast in the Scarlet and then headed to the Crimson restaurant to check in for our disembark at 10:30 am. Pleasantly surprised that we were called earlier and it was smooth and easy. We don't buy liquor or cigarettes so never have to be in that line. Bus was there to take us to our car and off we went. Another pleasant cruise in the books for us. 😁🚢
