I was pleasantly surprised by Carnival. Having traveled on Princess and Royal Caribean, I found it to be comparable except it had lots more activities geared toward young adults. This is a positive if traveling with children of any age. Our "kids" are 24,22,18 and they had a great time and so did we.
Cayman-Reef and Rays-booked with Carnival and worthwhile.
Isle of Roatan, Honduras- Victor Bodden Tour-Zip and Dip highly recommended ( not a carnival tour). This was our favorite shore excursion.
Belize- Goff Cay Snorkeling-booked with carnival and would recommend. Probably not the port to venture off on your own.
Cozumel: went to beach, snorkeling, parasailing, with Alfredo Camacho, our van driver. Contact at camacho_alfredo@hotmail.com
He's an excellent guide and it's less costly than carnival excursion.
Would travel again on Carnival anytime !
