This is the first time we have  taken our 2 boys on a cruise 12 and 17. My husband and I cruise by ourselves and have cruised on Holland America and Celebrity, both nicer ships and better service. For the price this trip was a decent value. There weren't as many activities as I though for the kids. The other cruise lines have just as many. I guess I was thinking Carnival was all about family but I would say they cater to a very diversified group. Overall a good experience.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Not nearly as friendly as other ships I have sailed. The staff seem to be worn out / over worked
Children's Programs Didn't participate
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom The cabin was fine. Comparable to other cruise lines. The balcony was smaller so cramped with 2 people.
Galveston, Texas
Montego Bay, Jamaica
The hop on hop off bus is not worth the $20. If you plan to just go to a beach take a cab.
George Town, Grand Cayman
The obvious, sting ray city.
Cozumel, Mexico
The local ruins are not much to see would recommend going to mainland for that tour


The burger joint and taco/burito bar are a must try early on in case you want to go back. We got surprised room service was $5/day to have coffee delivered. The comedy club was a favorite for both the PG and 18+ shows.
