As compared with other cruises on Carnival you have to go to a bar to get a soft drink refill, whereas other cruise lines have a better set up allowing you to go to self serve drink dispenser. Secondly some of the games on the main deck were definitely more adult and had women exposing their breast. Finally while the food in the main dining room was good, the food that was available throughout the day was not the best and the midnight buffet wasn't worth going to.

Other cruise lines have a beach included in the price, but this one doesn't you have to pay for it
Cabin / Stateroom
The windows were dirty and you couldn't see out of them
New Orleans, Louisiana
Cozumel, Mexico
You don't really go into Cozumel
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
You don't really go into Progresso


While the initial cost is a little cheaper, you end up paying more for everything else
