the ship was nice. we enjoyed all of the entertainment. However, the excursion that we paid for in Cozumel was overrated by the ship during the excursion talk on Tuesday. We had initially booked a Mini Jeep & snorkeling tour. The cruise director talked up the excursion Playa Mia Beach Resort Delux so much that we actually changed our plans. When we got there, it was not at all what we expected. We were stuck for 5 hours on a crowded beach with a buffet covered with flies. The "water activites" consisted of a tiny roped off area where we could kayak in a tiny circle. We felt like it was false advertisement and that the cruise line really pushed for this excursion. The one that we had initially booked was barely brushed over. We complained to the tour department on board and we simply received a letter of apology that it hadn't met our expectations and they thanked us for our input. It was extremely insulting that they did not offer us any compensation for a completely wasted day in Cozumel that we cannot get back!! This experience left a bad taste in our mouths for Carnival.

if you go here, you should try to get to the beach. We didn't make it there because we stayed in the shops too long. The water was absolutely beautiful.

i wrote my review about this port in the ship review, because it was so highly recommended by the ship's cruise director. If you have kids and want to simply sit around all day and let the kids play, do the Playa Mia Beach Resort Deluxe. If you do not have kids DON'T waste your money here! It ruined our day in Cozumel

Pros: the entertainment and the food

Cons: the clubs were all smoking, and we do not smoke so we couldnt go in them and also the excursion that was recomended was HORRIBLE

Recommends Carnival Inspiration? Yes!
