Overall we had a good time.  The crew was fantastic, food good and plenty to do or just relax.  Except for Grand Cayman, the ports of call comprised a shopping mall of all the same chains of duty free shops.  Not worth getting off the ship.  If you are taking the all day excursion to the Mayan ruins in Belize, then getting off the ship is worth it.  My only problem with the ship was the overwhelming smoke in the casino.  I like to play, but after 20 minutes I had to leave, never to return.  They need a separate "non-smoking" casino.  As an older couple, for future cruises, I will research the age demographics the cruise line attracts.  Looking for more sophistication than the 25-35 majority crowd on Carnival.

Ship Tip

If you don't like smoke, don't go to the casino or hang out on deck #5.
