Review summary

We celebrated Grandpa's 80th Birthday with 13 in attendance. The cruise was a nice length of time for this. There was enough variety to keep us busy and still have relaxation time. We even played some board games that we borrowed from the Library. Very well organized event by Carnival and very attentive, friendly, and courteous staff. Thank you!

Great service especially from our Dining Room staff. Thank you Pumipat you are the best! You always made us smile and took such great care of us. Thank you also to Draanrab and our head waiter Milan who were delightful. We loved the dining room staff, the magicians, and the dancing and singing by the staff.

Went to Moody Gardens. It was wonderful! The rain forest pyramid was spectacular. Also kudos and thanks Marriott Town Home Suites staff who accommodated all of our needs, and to Lloyd our dear and trusty shuttle driver. Thanks also to Marriott Courtyard for your kind staff and relaxing gathering area.

Went to see flamingos. So Many !! It was amazing! Boat ride through the mangroves and the little cenote was really cool. Super nice lunch at restaurant on the beach, Christine was a wonderful guide and we learned many interesting things about Yucatan and the culture here.
