It was pretty much what we expected form this particular cruise line/ship.  Fun passengers and crew.  Was set up very similar to other carnival ships.  The only thing that really stuck out was that there weren't any specialty restaurants.  Not that we would have dined in them but you never know.  The price of the cruise did drop $40 per person the last week before sailing.  I tried to get to refund the difference but they would not as it didn't fit their criteria for a refund.  It would have been nice for them to do something for the price change.  With that said we thought the trip was a good value.

Ship Quality
It what we expected and looked newr on inside then last Carnival ship we cruised
Food and Dining
The food is hit or miss. You can always get something different.

Very friendly and diversified.
There was a great counrty band. Other shows were during out dining time.
Children's Programs
We didnt do any

Destinations and Excursions
Grnad Cayman was somewhat sterile. Would have rather stayed 2 days in Cozumel.
Tampa, Florida
It was pretty easy going getting on and off the ship. The staff not as friendly during disembarkation.
George Town, Grand Cayman
The last tinder was suppoed to leave 2:15 so we couldnt do excusuions of choice. Come to find out the last tinder was almost and hr later then advertised by the ship. SO we could have done our excursion. :-(
Cozumel, Mexico
Fantastic port and very lively. Had planty of time for excusions. Would have loved to be there for 2 days.
