Review summary

The actual cruise was superlative. All emplyees and staff were great. Had diners with some great people and very much liked the friendly, helpful and courteous of all the shipboard employees. The shore excursions were a different matter. I know Carnival is not directly associated with the shore excursion operators but it would have greatly enhanced our total experience had we been able to participate in some of the more fun excursions, rather than having to settle for just shopping or having to hire somebody on our own to give us a driving tour. as was the case in Pueta Vallarta

excellent cabin. Very roomy w lots of space for wheelchair. Much better than many hotels i have been to that have wheelchair accessible rooms. Would definitely recommend the room to other whhelchair cruisers

Ship tip

Take time to explore the ship and see all tha it has to offer. do something differnt. Lots of oppotunities to partake in activities

Ports of call

The ADA accessible only available one day in Cabo San Lucas. So we were stuck on the ship w absolutely nothing to do since most other on board activity centers were shutdown. Had to cancel our zodiac humpback whale tour as a rsult. Very disappointing. Similar problem in Puerto Vallarta. Mist shore excursionns could or would not accomoadate someone in a whhelchair. and when i wanted to enroll my wife in the zip lune tour, they would not take us. even though I saidI would wait at bottom of zip line for her.
