Review SummaryWe took this cruise with our 4 kids ranging in age from 5-18. We had two outside cabins. They were quiet, clean and plenty roomy enough. We had to book our excursions separately from the ship because of our 5 year old was too young for most of their excursions. Turned out to be a great deal. We had wonderful excursions at less than half the price!! The food was fantastic. My kids didn't do Camp Carnival too much but rather to hang out by the pool. The shows need a little updating as does the decor of the ship. One of the comediens was hysterical but the other was mediocre. No problems in getting on or off the ship. We did the soft drink card which was a bargain for us. All in all it was a great vacation.

Don't Miss: Reef Club Resort through Auto Progreso
Don't Miss: In my opinion, you can't go wrong on anything in Cozumel, although it was very hot to have done the Ruins tours.
Pros: Food, Shows, Service was all excellent
Cons: Excursions are pricey (and not much for kids under 5), boat decor shows age but was very clean
