Disappointing. Overall, it was just OK. Not worth what we paid for the experience.

Adequate, but I've eaten much better in my college cafeteria. All of the desserts tasted the same. Seriously, they were practically indistinguishable.

The best part of the trip! We had a cove balcony, which was definitely worth it. We enjoyed the convenience of having a balcony and being able to step out and watch the waves and get some fresh air.

Not very good. They were only mildly entertaining. You'd think that they could come up with more exciting things. They do this every week, after all! They should have more variety.

Don't miss: Isla Roatan we got a beach cabana for the day ($225). Definitely worth it if you have a group of 4 and just want a relaxing day at the beach (with service).

Our other excursion was a day trip to the Mayan ruins at Tulum, while in Cozumel. The ruins were cool and it was exciting to be able to swim a bit in the water while we were there (the waves were amazing). But there's a lot of travel time to-and-from (both a boat ride and a bus trip), and the bus made a mandatory (and unwanted) shopping stop at an isolated "outlet mall".

I would not recommend this company, and I will not be cruising with Carnival again. I would be willing to pay a bit more for a better experience.
