Just got off this boat. it was my third Carnival cruise (Ecstacy, and Celebretion before). Really enjoyed the ugraded bed linens. The water slides were great entertainment for kids and adults. Great steward for room who was always helpful and very attentive. Dinner in the Carnivale dining room was great and the staff were also very attentive. First time to Spa Carnivale and REALLY enjoyed my facial, scalp, neck, back and foot and ankle massage.

Traveled with my mother (her 2nd cruise) and group of 7 other family members, so we all sat at the same table during dinner.

We didn't choose any shore excursions this time, but did shop in the stores at the pier in George Town, Grand Cayman as well as visit the famous 7 Mile beach (which was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL).

Enjoyed Cozumel but was disappointed in the shops at the Punta Langosta pier because everyone was pushy, but not terribly too annoying, though (this was my 2nd time to Cozumel--> first on Carnival Ecstacy)
