This was our first Carnival cruise. We had heard really mixed reviews about Carnival cruises to Caribbean before our cruise. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. The Embarkation process was smooth. As soon as we found our cabins, we were quite impressed how spacious they were. During our entire trip, we had not had one bad meal. All meals whether from the dinning rooms or from the buffet were excellent. Our dinner servers and cabin attendants were especially friendly and attentive. We traveled with 4 senior citizens who thoroughly enjoyed their first cruise experience.
The entertainment programs were overall plain, nothing memorable. One disappointment was the weather: during the entire 5-night trip we did NOT get to see any sunset. But that was not Carnival's fault :-)
On the negative size, we did not like the tender service to Cozumel. It was very poorly organized and delayed for almost 2 hours. Luckily we didn't book any excursion in Cozumel, otherwise we would have been extremely unhappy.

Only visited the international pier and the downtown pier and the weather was not cooperating. So my opinion is biased. From what I could see, it is a typical tourist spot: lots of tacky shops and cunning merchants.
Don't Miss: same shops over and over...
