Got a great price on this cruise. Inside cabin was roomy and clean. Pool is tiny and not enough chairs on sea days. Food at Guys Burger joint was great. Mexican cantina was good. Buffet food for dinner was fair at best. Pizza and deli ok. Drinks were very tropical and very good. Docked about 4 miles from downtown in Cozumel. Royal Caribbean ship docked downtown. Not much where Carnival ship was. Very disappointing. Played club music all day in pool area. I had a headache by 2pm. Geared to 20 somethings. Purchased liquor package. One bar tender swiped husbands card and said "wow, you've had 8 drinks today-that's a lot". Embarrassing. Did not swipe our credit card correctly on embarkation. Got detained at debarkation telling us and many people around us we had an outstanding balance. VERY embarrassing! Went to guest services and all they had to do was re-swipe card. Why couldn't they inform us of this earlier instead of embarrassing us at debarkation? Can't recommend Carnival. Had great experiences on Disney and Royal Caribbean. Pay a little more and have a much better vacation!

Unless you're docked right downtown, don't even get off the ship!
