7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 13, 2014
Ship: Navigator of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago

This cruise was a bit of a let down as everything seemed downgraded...the entertainment was quite disappointing especially since previous cruises out of this same port and same cruiseline just last year were significantly better all the way around. The food, the entertainment and the number of smiling faces on staff were all much better in the past. The shore excursion personnel, at least the two men, didn't REALLY know the tours...lots of misinformation... and were not about to be helpful about the ports for anything that didn't include a tour...maybe because they had never actually been to the ports before. I think this was the first time out for this itinerary as the ship just came out of dry dock. We spoke to some other older cruise experienced passengers who were also disappointed and said that to their surprise the Carnival Magic operating out of this port had better entertainment and food.
