Itinerary: Progresso Cozumel

Wanted to take my elderly mother on a cruise so I chose this 5- day itinerary. I was a bit concerned because my husband and I typically cruise on larger newer boats. Also our previous 2 Carnival cruises on the Glory and Liberty were somewhat disappointing as we felt customer service and attention had gone downhill. No need to worry. This ship was recently updated and very clean and up-to-date. Hated that you could not go from stern to aft on most decks, but otherwise enjoyed the smaller ship. Wait staff and cabin stewards were superb! Best personal attention of any cruise I've ever been on!

Selections of food have decreased, but food was good, if not superb.

Clean and spacious cabin. Have always hated the Carnival orange though.

Never at a loss for something to do on the ship. The activities and shows are good.
