Overall this cruise is awesome. 4 days of fun activities preceded and followed by a day of rest and relaxation. I highly recommend it.  The excursions we went on (all through Carnival) we very good except for Scuba diving in Cozumel. Cozumel has some of the best diving in the world and Sand Dollar Sports (who Carnival operates this excursion through) takes us to 2 absolutely disappointing reefs. Our dive master even took us over sand for most of our second dive. What a total waste of time and money. Book it outside of Carnival to get a great experience. 

Ship Quality
Decor is really bad. Hopefully they fired the interior design company before they get another ship.
Food and Dining
Dining room and service was great. Food was good.
Service and Staff
Cabin attendants were very good.
Kevin, the cruise director was great. Most of the comedians were disappointing.
Destinations and Excursions
With the exception of Cozumel, excursions were great. Roatan diving and Anthony's Key Resort were absolutely awesome!
Cozumel, Mexico
Sand Dollar Sports does a terrible job selecting dive spots. Don't waste your money
Belize City, Belize
Dark Night Tours did a phenomenal job with the Ultimate Exclusive Zipline and Cave Tubing. Couldn't say enough good things about them!
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Diving with Anthony's Key Resort made this incredible diving the best! Don't pass up diving here.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Stingray City and the Turtle Farm was very good. Carnival did a horrible job getting us off the ship. Totally disorganized. Lost 45 minutes of our tour because of that.
