We enjoyed the cruise, but the pool on our ship was way too small to actually enjoy. There were way too many people in it, and that was the only pool for kids and adults. It was standing room only, no room to swim at all! We loved the shows on the ship, and love bed the ports we stopped at. I do not recommend the excursions offered by Carnival--wait til you get to port and ask locals about best things to do or places to go. I bought an all inclusive ticket for me and my daughter to go to beach in Costa Maya and it was $75.00 for us to go to beach--all drinks were included, along with beach chairs and transport to and from beach. Service was not good, waited forever to get a drink! Talked to other tourists who traveled before, and they were going to beach for $3.00 each! I was a sucker!!! Food on ship was good. Wasn't a lot of activities for my 16 year old. There were 2 ping pong tables, and 2 sets of corn hole boards, and 9 hole mini golf. There were over 1000 people on ship, so you had to wait to play. My 10 year old enjoyed, but they had activities in Kentucky dd club for her! We will probably cruise again, but not on this ship--Carnival Sensation!

We bought the drink card for my 10 year old online before we got on ship, so we wouldn't have to stand in long line to do, and still had to stand in long line because they didn't have sticker on her card where we had already purchased. That was aggravating.
