We have only sailed with Celebrity before and we were  a little concerned how Carnival would match up. I must say the accommodation, food and service where very good considering what we paid. The staff in all areas of the ship worked extremely hard to please us.

The only major problem we had was on docking at Jamaica, and all the confusion as people didn't know  which buses to get to the main Terminal. I know the delay wasn't Carnivals fault, that it was windy and everyone was leaving the boat at the same time but we feel there should have been signs to direct us as no one knew where to go. Saying that the two other destinations we arrived at we had no problems.

We must say our trip which we booked with Carnival at Cozumel was excellent and our guide JC was a perfect host. The excursion was to Chankanaab to snorkel, including lunch and access to the lovely beaches.

We also liked the way you needed to sign in and out for your beach towels which stopped people leaving them on the sunbeds while they went off for lunch, so we could always find spare beds when at sea.

We would definitely sail with Carnival again, it was well worth the money we paid.
