My husband and I went on this cruise as a late honeymoon. We were very disapointed with our cruise and won't be doing another one again. There was a lot of information that we did not know about until we were there which I will list some below.

The food was not good at all. The pizza I couldn't even finish. The burrito bar was very americanized. Everything was very plain. The best thing I had was probably a sandwich and the salad bar.

The stateroom was actually decent. We had the balcony which we never used so if we were to do it again (which we won't) we would do the window stateroom. The only negative was that it was alittle small but it wasn't too bad. They were very on top of keeping your room made up for you which was really nice.

There was alot of them. Most shows were good and entertaining. Some cost extra like bingo, etc. So make sure to keep an eye on your account because they add up quickly.

Stay away from Carnival cruise lines all together. Unless your looking for more of a kid cruise and like to be on a big time schedule. Don't miss Jamaica. Their zipline and white river rafting was one of the best and funniest things we did by far.

On board-The cruise members were very friendly and they made the cruise alittle better. We really enjoyed our waiter and cabin crew member. Alcoholic Drinks run about $6-8. Sodas were like $1.50. Our ship had three swimming pools they were consistenly crowded and they were straight salt water. The slide seemed fun but the line was huge so we didnt even try it. The spa was nice but my husband and I got an 70 min treatment which ran us $350.

On shore- First off, the time one board is different than the time on the islands. So when we thought we were going to be on the island from 9-4 you were really on the island from 8-3 which the shops are open and our tours weren't until later so basically we had an hour or two to sit around and waste. We also felt that there was not enough time to get a true feel of the island. In mexico we did one excursion and did an all inclusive resort for a few hours and we still only had an hour to shop. FYI make sure to bring cash in Cozumel, Mexico most places don't accept credit/debit cards. Grand Cayman was fine, a little expensive, and nothing that wowed us. Jamaica was the best island of all, in our opinion, however we had about an hour in a half to waste in the morning due to the time difference and nothing was open yet. After we did the white river rafting which was actually pretty calm, but very interested and fun, the bobsled, and the zipline which was insane and very fun. We only had literally 20 mins to shop and never was able to eat anything on the island. All the people in jamaica were very friendly. The weather the entire time was odd. It was very humid. We come from 115 degree heat in the summer but never experienced anything like that. It would rain for like 10-15 mins every few hours. However that did not really bother us.
