Grand Cayman Islands is a dump. Same as Cozumel.

Sail Date: April 15, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Expected Cozumel and Grand Cayman to be little crappy, poor resident stops, but what made the cruise really suck was that the food wasn't that good on board. Sure, the basics like salads and fruit were fine but the prepared meals were far from delicious. Everyone knows that the food is a big part of cruising, especially when you can't just hop off the ship and find a decent meal at any time. Having been hungry for something decent all the time basically ruined any of the positives that may have presented themselves on this cruise. It must be the cooks/supplies at this time of year, because my neighbor went on same cruise last August and food was very good. I guess since it was at an "off" time of year and prices were much lower at this time, they make it up by serving the scraps from the rest of the year. Anyway, since Carnival refuses to reimburse U.S. taxpayers for their $800,000 rescue at sea, and its not like they can't afford their OWN $$, I will never take a carnival cruise again..., unless paid!
