Review SummaryI swore I'd never cruise with Carnival again, after my first experience several years ago, but I caved to my daughter and her friend's pleas. I have been a travel agent for over 30 years, so am experienced, yet also not overly picky or demanding. Perhaps it's also that I really don't like Las Vegas either, but there are MUCH better cruise lines, even for the money. My biggest complaints are the tendering process (waited two hours, both getting off and back on the ship, so only spent a couple of hours actually on Grand Cayman), the garishness of the decor onboard, and the clientele. (Many people tried to butt in line during the tendering process, and several showed up in "wife-beater" t-shirts to dinners in the dining room.) If that's what you like on a cruise, this is the one for you! I also developed some sort of allergy, which caused my eyes to turn bright red, swell up (to the point I couldn't see), and crust over -- the medical staff was great, but there was obviously something on the ship (perhaps the water?) that was a problem, as I have never experienced such a reaction to anything else.
