Itinerary: Western Caribbean

Just returned from cruise to Key West and Cozumel. We flew into the Miami airport and took the shuttle that is endorsed by Carnival. My suggestion is to take a taxi as we were pretty much scared outta our wits on the bus from the airport to the port! The bus driver was completely nuts and drove as fast and reckless as he could. Once we arrived alive, we were all thankful. The ship is kept in great condition. We had some problems with the staff which I think is due to the fact that their tips are already basically prepaid. Room steward was okay, dining room waiter was not very talkative but his assistant was very nice. Pool bar waiters were very attentive and did a great job at keeping the beverages flowing. Food was not the greatest as it seems as if Carnival is trying some new dishes (more gourmet). I had to eat a hamburger for lunch for two days as I couldn't find anything to appeal to me at the Lido buffet. The lobster and prime rib night were awesome though. Key West was cloudily the day we arrived so that was a good thing. We had only limited time there...not really enough to do a whole heck of a lot. My suggestion would be to stay longer (say until 5pm). Cozumel was beautiful and I would recommend the Catamaran (Fury) as it was a fun trip. All drinks, snorkel, and private beach are included. The staff of the Fury is absolutely the best and made our time so fun! Everyone had a blast! All in all, this ship is good for a four day cruise as Key West and Cozumel are nice ports to visit.
