Fantastic Trip

Room Type: Inside

This was our first cruise and it was just as Carnival advertised - FUN. The shows were great, the food was amazing, the ship was spotless, the crew and staff were amazingly friendly and made us all feel at home. Cozumel was beautiful and the catamaran snorkeling and to a private beach was an amazing experience. In Progresso the trip to the Mayan ruins was a long bus ride but worth every moment.

The cabin was spacious - we had a king sized bed and plenty of room.


I would HIGHLY recommend booking the shore excursions directly with Carnival. On our Progresso day to the Mayan Ruins our bus got back to the boat with 15 minutes to spare before the boat was scheduled to leave - if we wouldn't have been on a Carnival booked shore excursion I would have been worried
