The pictures are very expensive and if you want to drink bottled water take your own. The tours were awesome. Don't worry about tips on board - Carnival automatically charges them to your tab. I would do most of my shopping before Costa Maya.
Get up early on "at sea days" and enjoy the Sea Day Brunch in the Silver Dining Room. It was so worth it. You can always get back in bed and nap on a full tummy. Try the adults only pool and hot tub. I also ate breakfast and lunch there in that area. Emile's was always so crowded.
We do take sodas and water on board, $4+ for a can of Coke is a bit much, but typical of all lines. The support staff in the spa were great. Often so cold on board that a light jacket felt really good. Nothing unpleasant per se.
definately hit the martini bar and see Mirko. he is difinately a mixologist. the fruit in the drinks are better for you than all that sugar in the syrup mixers. oh...and don't forget about the cigar lounge. our bartender Yoga, was awesome
Take SEVERAL extension cords and multi plug adapters, and if you don't have a heavy duty cord in your stateroom, call for one. you need smaller extension cords to plug to the big one and some duct tape to tape them to the floor so you don't trip! There is only ONE plug in the state room.
