We loved our cruise on Carnival and the help of Dawn Catlin with  in advance of the cruise was outstanding. Our only complaint for the cruise was the long lines to get checked in at Galveston and long lines again when we returned. Also, our excursion in Belize on an airboat was a disappointment. It was advertised to see manatees and there was none to be seen. We saw on young alligator and a few birds. Not worth the price in our opinion. Everything onboard ship was very nice and fun. The food was delicious and all of the staff were friendly and helpful. We especially liked the comedy entertainment and the singing by JR in the Red Frog Lounge.

Galveston, Texas
We arrived at 12:30 and stood in line over 2 hours. Very few people arrived behind us. If we waited until 2:30 to arrive we could have boarded without delay I think.

Everything on board was outstanding. Good food and good entertainment. Friendly and polite staff in all areas. I would advise getting to the loading dock late rather than early.
