We've been on 4 previous cruises and were quite pleasantly surprised by the "Carnival" experience. The food was outstanding and the crew "Mostly Eastern Europeans" couldn't have been nicer. The 2 ports of call Key West and Playa Del Carmen were 2 excellent choices. Make sure to check out Senor Frogs at Playa Del Carmen. We would definitely look at Carnival for our next cruise experience.

Pros: The food

Cons: Pool size

Cabin / Stateroom
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Been on a Royal Caribbean and Costa cruise ships and the food here was as good if not better than either of the other 2 lines
Service and Staff
Calica, Mexico
We had a good activity "Power Snorkeling" Reasonably priced and a lot of fun. After the activity we stopped in town and had a great time at Senor Frogs with all the staff.
Don't Miss: Power snorkeling
Key West, Florida
Looking for a possible vacation site in the winter and got a good idea of what Key West is like. The stay was short only 5 hours of "Off Ship" time.
