The overall experience was great. I was very nervous about taking my 10 year old and 7 year old, but I should not have been worried. Mom and Dad got time alone and the kids had friends to play with!

Food was very good in the dining rooms were very good; the food in the buffett was acceptable. It still was GOOD, but not alot of healthy options. The Steakhouse was worth the extra money - great meal! Well taken care of with our own wine sommalier and at least two persons taking care of the table. Also, room service was GREAT for the much needed Fourth Meal. :)

We had adjoining staterooms with the kids. We had a king size bed and the kids were next door in twin beds. we had no problems and had plenty room; if only the kids would have picked up after themselves!

Great - - - I wish they used the movie theater screen every night for activities.

We enjoyed the swiming with Dolphins in Cozumel, but I questioin who "owns" the facility. If it is actually owned by Carnival, I am even more pissed for the cost. Cool, yes . . . But I was hoping for a once in a lifetime experience. Tube Caving in Belize was great. We were able to book with an outside company ( and the did a GREAT Job. Not too expensive and you get to see more than just the port. Belize is beautiful, if you get out of the port area . .. highly recommend it! May sure to ask your guides info about Belize. We didn't get to stop in Honduras because of the weather but I wish I would been able to debark. It had beautiful shoreline. Costa Maya was a Mexican city that is being marketed by the Cruise Lines. USe this port for relaxation, but don't spend your money on "extras" here unless it is something you REALLY want to do.
