Wonderful Cruise

Sail Date: May 14, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was beautiful. The only other problem was getting off the ship for excursions and debarkation. There wasn't enough signs or knowledgable people to direct you on where to go.

Pros: The staff on board were incredible. They did such a good job keeping the rooms clean and were very friendly and helpful. Ports of call were awesome.

Cons: The only negative thing I experienced was the relationship between Carnival and Priceline. We had trouble getting our tickets and Carnival refused to cooperate. Staff at Priceline were very helpful though.

Ship Quality
A bit of a problem with getting from one end to the other as you had to zig zag from one floor to the other.
Food and Dining
Food quality was OK. Variety and convenience was good.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was smaller than I was expecting and the beds were not as comfortable as we were led to believe.
The 80's show in the Ivan Hoe Theater was awesome!
Service and Staff
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Beautiful island. Didn't have enough time to see all the things we wanted to see.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Very well done. Shopping was excellent.
Don't Miss: Jungle Beach Break in Majahual.
George Town, Grand Cayman
A lot of confusion at the dock. Tenders were not well organized.
Belize City, Belize
Tenders were awesome. Dock area was well layed out and protected from the locals that try to harass tourists.
Don't Miss: Cave tubing
