We chose Carnival for our first cruise and boy did they not disappoint us!!! We had the most amazing time and can't wait to book our next cruise. Everything from the staff, food, excursions, cleanliness of the ship and cruise director (Schwartz) were AMAZING!!! We had the most amazing cabin steward (Wai), she took care of our every need and remembered our first names from the very start of the cruise, which was very impressive!!! We swam with the sting rays in Grand Cayman and snorkeled in Cozumel. The only thing we would suggest is in Jamaica, book an excursion, the locals are very pushy and we could have done without that. Overall we had an excellent experience and will definitely be sailing with Carnival again. We did go to the comedy show and it didn't disappoint, I haven't laughed so hard in a very long time. We also played bingo, went to the casino, and ate at a couple of the specialty restaurants that were amazing. We are still talking about Guys Burgers and can't wait til our next cruise.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Snorkeling
    We can't say enough about this experience.!!! my husband is a diver and I really wanted him to experience diving in Cozumel but he refused because I had never even been snorkeling. After this experience I will definitely be back to experience a dive with him. The water was absolutely amazing and clear. Do this excursion, you wont regret it!!!

  • Stingray Swim
    Oh my gosh, we had a blast on this excursion! The staff that we had was amazing!! They were very informative and helpful during this excursion. They took pictures for us and made sure everyone was able to have a great experience. Would definitely recommend this excursion and group.

    When visiting this port, we would suggest booking a private excursion. We tried to walk around and experience Jamaica on our own and were bombarded with the locals, which was annoying. They were constantly trying to get us in their vehicles or trying to sell us joints......not cool
