We used an agent through Carnival to help book our honeymoon-it was not until we got to Long Beach to board the ship that we realized, he didn't do half the things he said he was going to. We didn't have the dining time he said we did, we didn't have the priority boarding like he said we did...I was surprised we had a room at all.
The luggage gets delivered to the outside of your door. We didn't mind waiting, everyone else was and it gave us a chance to eat and explore the ship. But when my luggage didn't reach the room and the ship had set sail...the staff made it seem like they cared and told us to go to the front desk to see if it was there. It was there. It was labeled correctly and was very visible so I am not sure why it never made it to our room. But the thing that upset me was, we walked away with my luggage and NO ONE stopped us or doubled checked to make sure it was actually my bag which tells me, they would not have stopped anyone is someone else had grabbed my bag.
Being in port in P.V was fine...we were there all day, so it was nice to take your time getting off the ship and getting back on. Mazitlan...we didn't get off the ship. Port was not appealing. Cabo San Lucas was gorgeous, but the downer was, we didn't get very long there. You couldn't go lay out on the beach and fall asleep in the sand because you had to be back to take the taxi to the ship no later than 2.
Other than what I mentioned above, it was a good overall experience.

Delicious. Portions in the restaurant are small, so order two apps or two entrees...:)

We splugured for a suite. It was my first cruise so I loved it. It was my husbands second cruise and he said the bigger room was great. However, if you don't plan on staying in your room much and want to get off the ship each time and want to stay out late...all you need if a bed right?

We didn't partake in any. We watched the Laker game finals on the big screen and played some poker...but we just relaxed and took each day as it came.
