Cruise was Terrific but Excursions had problems !

Sail Date: December 07, 2014

Room Type: Inside

Our two excursions had problems because we did not book them through Carnival. Our excursion at Grand Cayman Island started at 1 pm and we had to be back at the ship by 3:30 pm so we missed seeing the world famous turtles. Plus, I spent over $75 in taxi fees because there were no other Carnival passengers to share the taxi with. We docked at Cozumel at 10 am and by the time we were allowed to get off the ship, we almost missed our snorkeling excursion. The cruise itself was a wonderful experience and we dined in the Chic Restaurant 4 of the 6 nights - it was fantastic - great food & great service !!! It was a wonderful experience. The ship's entertainment was not as good as it was two years ago. 

Ship Quality
Very clean - great shape !
Food and Dining
Chic was tremendous dining experience !!
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Newbon, our cabin steward did a great job. Chic "wait" staff - Leo, etc. was excellent!!!
Did enjoy the Adult comedy shows - the other shows were just okay.
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Our excursions had some problems.


Guy's burgers was a great place to enjoy a hamburger & fries. The food & service at the Chic might be the best on the ocean.
