I chose this cruise because of price, itinerary, time of year and past experience. The ship is easy to get around. There did not seem to be long lines anywhere. Getting on and off the ship was easy and I used Carnival transportation to the debarkation airport. It was easy and arrived plenty of time to catch my 12:30 Miami flight home. The Playlist performers were excellent - don't miss their shows. I enjoyed some of the bands around the ship. Don't waste your time going to the fun ashore fun abroad information event and the shopping show on the first day. Unless you like Price is right then go to the excursion information event. The shopping maps you get when you get off the ship at each port. The ports were Belize, Mahogany Bay, Caymans and Cozumel and all were awesome. The water shuttles were easy and well timed. The only negative was lack of communication on Carnival's part while we were waiting to get off in Cozumel. They were trying to do a good thing by bringing a ferry to the ship for those of us who had Carnival excursions but the weather did not cooperate. Instead of telling us what was going on all of a sudden they said follow us and they led us to the gangway without telling us we were to pick up the ferry in the port. Actually other than leading us to the gangway there was no further communication and if this would have been first time traveling I would have been lost. We had a bit of rocky weather coming home on last sea day. Dishes were sliding off the tables in dining room and waiters did an excellent job of trying to keep them on the tables. They added cloth napkins under plates to keep them from sliding. Maybe Carnival should think about bringing back tablecloths for ALL meals! Cruise director - only time saw him was his introductions to the performances and the shore excursion presentation. Could do without him. Not impressed.
