This was our 6th cruise overall and fourth with Carnival. The overall experience was good to great but not excellent. Excellent value for the price though!

Since the island is so small, your best bet is to take a tour with the locals. It's much cheaper and you see the exact same things you would have on a ship excursion.

The ship excursion we went on gave us a brief tour of the city and some country areas. It was so-so at best. We wish we'd gone to the recommended beach instead. Others had had a great time there.

Don't Miss: Tour of Altun Ha was the best!

We took a taxi to Paradise beach and had an excellent time. It was very relaxing and the beach itself was clean (although the water was a little dirty.) Using the lounge chairs and umbrellas is free, but they do encourage you to order something from the bar.
Don't Miss: Taxi to the beach.

Pros: We liked the itinerary and our cabin stewart the most.

Cons: Our dining experience was good, not great.

Recommends Carnival Valor? Yes!
