Review summary

This was not a relaxing cruise at all. The volume of every speaker, including the musicians needs to be lowered. You could not talk at the lobby bar, you could not relax in the spa, when the cruise director made announcements it was so obnoxious that people were covering their ears. You should be able to at least lower the volume in the suites. Nothing was explained, either by or Carnival, ie. we had trouble with seating for dinner and were greeted by rudeness, with the exception of Yulia who was phenomenal.

We went to a beach club, lunch and tequila tasting. While the tour guides were excellent and the snorkeling good, the club itself was a disgrace. I am sad I wasted a day here.

Visited salt flats, Mayan ruins and church and beach. I would have like more time at the beach. We had less than 20 minutes to swim.
