Overall I had a great time on the ship being my first cruise. I was traveling with my family and I found many things to do even though I was really cruising to be with family and relax! They embarkation and deparkation Carnival has down to a science. I will choose Carnival again, but maybe a bigger, newer ship with more options and activities.

The food in the dining is just like your normal cafeteria food. I did not like the food on the LIdo Deck buffet, I found it to be cold and unappetizing except for the Mexican Buffet they had on the last night. The Sushi was delicious and I spent many an hour eating there. I also enjoyed the pastries and coffees at the new Coffee House.

The stateroom was an inside room. I was warned about the size and was not suprised. They kept the room clean and it was nice to see the towel animals and the bed turned down. Unfortunately they only did one stuffed animal for one person in the room and not everybody. I was a bit discomforted with the room being so cold and we could not get any heat.

I was not really there to participate in the onboard activities. I noticed that there was always something going on and the other passengers were always involved. I did participate in Karoake every night with the family and the guy running it always looked forward to us coming there every night. I was entertained but like I said I really wanted to relax which I did.

My sister and I went to the Ruins of Tulum which was long, tiring, but great if you enjoy history, taking pictures, and something other than another port selling you souvinirs. I would suggest for the Ruins of Tulum that you have comfotable shoes , a snack and something to truly protect you from the sun. I did not6 go into town because I am not a shopping kind of person. Be careful of the taxi cab drivers, sometimes they may want to trick you with their prices, so make sure that you lock into a price coming and going. The excursions were very well planned and we were taken care of and I did not have to worry about getting on the ship.
