Good Cruise, but horrible CruiseOnly

Sail Date: December 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

I would have to say the Cruise was excellent with the food, service and...well that's about it.

Let me quickly summarize everything:
Rip off prices for drinks (I know it's a vacation, but no reason to make it 8 bucks a beer or try to get you to buy something every where you walk)
Apparently a fog can postpone a trip for a full day, so Cruise Ship Carnival decide to play it smart and decrease the Conzumel Experience by a half with only 3-4 hours of offshore experience.
Our most horrible experience EXCURSION BOOKED THROUGH CRUISEONLY.COM. I would have say this is the worse mistake we made, first rip off prices of taxi and no assistance from cruiseonly to book a LEGIT taxi cab like Carnival did with their excursion group. The tour guides gave us a 1/2 minute lesson on how to snorkel which ended to be the water was way too cold, people charging us for a fee to leave the port, some stupid nature fee, another fee to enter the port and of course the speech they gave us about not being paid and only by tips. It was hillarious, we knew it was all BS but we wanted to just get home. Rough ride in a ship which has insane gas fumes and polluted the experience, my GF got sick because of the fumes and the guides didn't care about it and just continue to rough ride the ship.

Pros: Cruise and food

Cons: Excursion from CruiseOnly
