November 2015 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Western
Had a great time swimming in the cenote and caves and of course snorkeling with all the absolutely gorgeous types of coral, sea fans, crustaceans and schools of brightly colored fish on the meso american barrier reef, especially in the southern part where much of the beach coral is still intact and unspoiled. Was more than a little overcast on the trip this time and some of the passengers seemed to get rowdier as the seas got rougher, without any intervening of security or staff. I guess everyone is happy to leave a soon to pass out, belligerent drunk alone. Also had more than a small problem with our air conditioning in addition to our beds not being the kind that fit together like we had last time, which really put the brakes on cuddle time, but ultimately decided we didn't really need a refund for any of these things. Still, might just fly down and spend a week in San Pedro at the beach next time.
