I had such a wonderful time on this cruise of my dreams with my husband.  I have wanted to cruise to Cozumel, Belize, Roatan and the Cayman Islands for several years now.  Service was excellent, food was phenomenal,, especially the nite we had Tiramiso for dessert.  I had no idea how large a portion was and ordered 2.. Well, I kinda bit off more than I could chew, but it was delicious, and I enjoyed every single bite.  The Tour director, Willie, was a "Piece of Work" along with another cruise partner who did the Karioke several nites during the trip.. I had the time of my life up on the top deck with the Mexican themed entertainment, Limbo Rock, and all kinds of activities that nite.  The tours that I booked thru Carnival in Cozumel at Chankanaab Park were so enjoyable. What a beautiful beach and snorkel area. I will also say the museum of Discover Mexico was great too.  I believe I booked the Cayman Islands tour, where we went to the Turtle Farm, Dolphin area, and saw "Hell"   That was such an amazing and unbelievable sight to see. I couldnt imagine how that place came to be, but after reading some literature and talking to others, I understood how its formation came about. While on the cruise, we also went EcoSuspension Bridge and the Zip Line Tour.. That was one head rush I will never forget either, makes me want to go ZipLining again,, but nothing will compare to our experience.  I was scared to death at first, but after the first 2 or 3, it was "smooth sailing" or should I say FLYING..  What an experience.. WOW.. I hated to think of having to come back to reality from such a wonderful Crusing experience.. I look forward to sailing again in the future hopefully the Eastern Caribbean to include the Virgin Islands etc.  One other place I would like to go is to Alaska, but my age may be a determining factor and how well I can get around.

I encourage everyone to take the Carnival Experience to the Western Caribbean Islands.. Take in the Mayan ruins, which is interesting in itself.  That was one goal that I completed in Belize.. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much for such an awesome cruiseWink

Loved the Zipline and Eco-suspension bridge experience.

George Town, Grand Cayman Did not visit port

Enjoyed seeing the tour areas, HELL, the Turtle Farm, disappointed that I didnt get a chance to snorkel, and LATER I found out there was an amazing snorkel experience at the Turtle Farm, that I wasnt aware of.. One of my main purposes was to go Snorkeling and see beautifully colored fish, but there were only a few in Cozumel, and I didnt get a chance to snorkel again
