Review summary

I always enjoy cruising. I also like that I can go through to start off my cruise for a few dollars vs a bigger down payment with Carnival directly. I will always cruise!

The BEST birthday I ever had... This cruise was so much fun!!!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food has changed over time. My first cruise back in 2011 had the best food, but within the past 12 months I've taken 3 cruises and even over this time they seem to have changed the food choices at the buffet. However, the food in the fine dining was pretty good.

Onboard Activities

The shows from the Victorian Theater to the Comedy Club was amazing. I enjoy theater of any kind and they did not fail me at all. I laughed until I cried and I was in awe of the live theater performances. They had some phenomenal singers and dancers and the new back ground screen offers an even better experience.

Children's Programs

I did not take children on the cruise.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
For the most part, the service staff was great. We had a couple of bumps with a few rude staff members, but we reported it to the manager.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship is nice, but I have heard that others ships have nicer designs and more amenities. The ship is cleaned all day every day and I love it!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
My Balcony Stateroom was absolutely EVERYTHING I needed!!!

Ship tip

I know they have to make money on the ship, but I hate that everything turn I take someone is trying to sell me something. I've already paid a high price for my room and I don't prefer to have to turn down one offer at least 3 times before they move on.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

Had a great time. We met up with some cruise mates to meet for the first time after talking for months on a FaceBook page created for this cruise. I also got a tattoo... So it was good.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
This is my 3rd time in Cozumel within 12 months. This place is pretty raggedy, but their water is so pretty and clear. I did enjoy going to the Bob Marley beach. We rented a jeep that was so raggedy, but it got us around the Island and that is what we wanted to do.

Belize City, Belize

Belize was also very raggedy and poor. I don't like the fact that they tried to set me up and take me to jail. They are so poor and always finding ways to get money from the tourist and tried to plant something on me to say I stole it. It was ridiculous. But of course I was left alone after I gave them a piece of my mind.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
This place was beautiful. We rented a car that was nice. We drove the island and got some good stuff. I would love to return.

I never knew that Carnival would allow people to travel and upon their return hold them for the police to come and take them to jail if they had a warrant. Someone with me had a misdemeanor warrant for something they didn't even do from some years ago and they were taken to jail. It was such an inconvenience. We had to drive back to Houston the next day to pick them up. It was TERRIBLE!!! Why not share this upfront with travelers.
