Dolphin Excursion was excellent, but other than that it was very commericalized by the cruise line.
Don't Miss: Dolphin Excursion

Not very impressive if you didn't take an excursion; the commercialized area run by the cruise line was okay, but the city seemed dangerous and people were constantly pressuring you to buy something from them.
Don't Miss: none

Did not dock at this port as planned; the captain said it was because of "rough seas", but they didn't seem too rough and a Royal Caribbean ship docked as we were leaving the area.

Pros: most of staff was polite, clean rooms, entertainment was good

Cons: Did not stop at Roatan because of "rough seas"; however Royal Caribbean pulled into the same dock as we were watching; too many passengers; accessibility to main areas was poor; long lines at the buffet for breakfast and lunch; next to no service from the Maitre D; old ship, rusty areas

Recommends Carnival Triumph? No.
