Great Cruise - would sail with Carnival again!

Sail Date: August 15, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

My daughter and I have cruised w/ Carnival several times now and have always enjoyed the voyages.  We've been upgraded in cabins each time and are hoping for another upgrade our next cruise.  Overall, shipwise, everything is pretty clean, staff are helpful and intent on making the cruise as enjoyable as possible.  Thanks for another great vacation!

Cabin / Stateroom Really enjoyed the balcony on this trip. It would be great to be upgraded to a balcony suite next time around!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Need to speed up the process, if possible, although this trip the disembarkation seemed to go a little faster.
Ship Quality
The ship was very, very clean and the room staff kept everything organized and clean as well.
Destinations and Excursions
Do any of these cruises go to Cancun? That would be great! Also, the beach excursion that we went on in Progreso was less than expected. Food was not very good, not enough shaded seated and the beach wasn't very inviting.
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Since I've been on several previous cruises, it seems that quite a few of the things to do are the same from cruise to cruise. It would be nice if there were a few things to do that would bring people together a bit more to share common interests, besides lounging around the pool (which seems to be just for the young crowd) or going to a "show."
Service and Staff
Sam (sorry, don't have last name) was the cabin steward on our cruise and he was excellent!
Food and Dining
The good is always great on the cruise.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Didn't really enjoy Progreso very much - out beach excursion left a lot to be desired. Too far to travel for the value of the trip.
Cozumel, Mexico
Really enjoyed the mini-sub excursion - the snorkeling crew was very informative and gave great instructions. Felt very safe and enjoyed it very much!
