Trip:
The nice thing about a cruise - hotel, travel and food is all taken care of and included (minus the flight to and from the departure point). Even excursions are waiting for you at the port of calls, for an additional fee of course. This was my first cruise were I actually participated in doing some on shore excursions. I have been on several - Alaskan, New England, Mexican & NASSAU; however, taking it that one step further really made a difference.

Suggestions:
Many of my family joined in for this opportunity - my grandfather who was 94 years old, grandmother, parents and some extended family/friends embarked on this adventure together - we left in October out of Miami on the Carnival Cruise ship Valor. Now I have cruised with two companies - Carnival and Norwegian. I personally prefer Carnival - I like the structure that goes with an assigned dining time & room - always having the same waiter/housekeeping staff etc. adds a personal touch which I felt was lost with the freestyle cruise we experienced on Norwegian.

If you have ever been on a cruise, you will know the food is amazing - and we always prepare by gorging ourselves before we board the boat. On-board and between ports - there is plenty to occupy yourself with. from great shows in the theatre, swimming pools, water slides, ice carving, karaoke, kid activities, gym, topless deck, casino, shops to even bingo!

Our first port was the Grand Caymans, a beautiful place full of shops and food close by at the port. The next port was Isla Roatan, right off the port was Mahogany Bay where there was a number of shops; however, we continued by hiring a driver to take us around the area. We played with monkeys, had ourselves lunch out and returned to the ship.

Our third stop was my first on shore excursion in Belize. This was my first time doing Zip Lining, actually they called this type a Canopy Tour. This was very cool, I went with a group to glide from tree to tree and repel back down. I would highly recommend this as I had a blast!

Our final stop was Cozumel, Mexico - at this port my mom and others from our group went on the excursion to see the Tulum Mayan Ruins. Now I was planning a trip to Machu Picchu later that year, and having now been to both - they each offered a very different view - and both are worth seeing. These ruins are well kept, right next to the water as compared to Machu Picchu which is high up in the mountains with no water in sight.

Over all this was a really great trip and - Carnival really does a good job at ensuring you have a good time.
