Ship Quality
see above
Food and Dining
A lot more dining options including vegetarian than the last Carnival trip I took.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
most everyone was friendly and helpful. Few persons were "having a bad day" and responded to you in kind.
Comedy club was pretty good. There was a good variety for all tastes.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Awesome diving. The best of the trip
Don't Miss: The coral--either diving or snorkeling
George Town, Grand Cayman
We did a two tank dive through the ship excusions. The company was well run, efficient, friendly and professional. didn't do much site seeing or shopping. Did eat at "The Breeze" which was over a shop on the main street which had very good food.
Don't Miss: Stingray city (did this before)
Belize City, Belize
Diving was good. Day was overcast so the coral was not as colorful. It was hot and muggy. Did not make the mainland since the tour operators pick you up directly from the ship.
Cozumel, Mexico
This is some of the best diving in the world, by far. It is drift diving, so it takes a little skill to "relax" and let the current take you along the reef.
Don't Miss: The wildlife marine park at the southern end of the island. Great diving and snorkeling
