Carnival Cruise Lines
This was my first cruise. I took this trip with 5 other ladies. We had a blast! The ship was beautiful. We had an interior room on the 8th floor. I would not recommend squeezing 4 girls into one room (which is what we did). Two people fit in the interior rooms nicely. I have read several bad reviews about the ship’s service. I must say I did not encounter one rude employee on the ship in seven days. I spent most of my days when we were at sea on the Lido deck and the service there was outstanding! Boris who is one of the many waiters on the Lido Deck was exceptional. The dining room service was great. Our two servers Victoria and Tanya were excellent. The food was okay.
Jamaica is definitely something to see. I didn’t realize how poor the people are there. We were not offered drugs like you read in most of the reviews. Although I would not doubt that it happens often. We hired a private tour company called Barrett Adventures. Our tour guide Chester was very nice. I would definitely recommend using Barrett Adventures. They took us places that were not crowded with cruise tourists which was nice. Make sure to book an excursion for Grand Cayman. We decided to just do some shopping there and it was a total bust. Many of the people on the ship recommended the sting ray tour and 8 mile beach. Cozumel was by far the best port! We did the sail snorkel and beach party excursion. They take you snorkeling, then you take a ride over to a private beach where they have kayaks, volley ball and other fun beach activities. It was so much fun. If I go to Cozumel again I will definitely do it again. Not an excursion for kiddos...as beer and margaritas are included.
We met a lot of nice people and I would recommend this cruise to anyone. If you have any questions you can email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
