Cruise okay

Sail Date: October 19, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We have cruised before on Carnival but that was seven years ago.  We were instructed to board at 11:30 a.m.; however, we couldn't get into our cabin until 1:00 p.m.  Fortunately, our cabin steward let us stow our luggage in the closet so we didn't have to lug it around.  We were really not pleased with the urine smell in our cabin. The only explanation we got was chemical.  However, the toilet stopped working a couple of times and we learned there was a clog right outside our cabin.  The service in the dining room was great. Not happy with the shore excursions.  Debarking was a nightmare and we would have to think twice before we would sail out of Galveston again.  Two and half hours of waiting is unacceptable.  

Ship Quality
Except for the cabin, it was great.
Food and Dining
A little too European for our tastes. Not a fan of duck.
Service and Staff
Very personable room steward and great dining room service.
Love the comedians.
Children's Programs NA
Onboard Activities
Too many activities to participate in all.
Destinations and Excursions
First two were not good. Third was good but we had to walk to destination.
Cabin / Stateroom
Smelled of urine and the toilet stopped working a couple of times.
Galveston, Texas
Too much time to get through customs and debark. Nightmare!
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Glass bottom boat ride was a nightmare. Horrible driver, bad roads out in the boonies and old boat that caused sea sickness.
Belize City, Belize
The Baymen City Tour was cut short but was loaded with cheesy pirates. The Travelers Rum tour was a joke. All they wanted was to sell you booze.
Cozumel, Mexico
Discover Mexico was okay but we had to walk there from the pier - about 1.5 miles. Ridiculous. They did send us back in a cab.


Definitely not enough outlets in the room.
