Travel Advice: Carnival Cruise to Cozumel
Cruising is COOL! We used to think cruising was not for our age group but we were wrong. We went on a five day cruise aboard Carnival from Galveston TX to Cozumel Mexico and we had the time of our lives. It was a non-stop party and a floating buffet. All your food is included YES IT IS!
Our travel blog was created to tell you the good, the bad and the ugly. If you like to drink adult beverages, this is where your bill can increase. We had people who paid between $500 to over $1000 in drink bills! Since you don’t pay until the end, they just add it to your bill and SURPRISE!!
Our best travel tips include: you can bring your own water (save lots of money), pack lightly and remember that at the end you should tip the cruise staff so bring extra money for that. Additionally, if you are a first time cruiser, remember to bring a formal outfit (tuxedo, suit, fancy dress) for the captain’s dinner night.
One of the best parts about our cruise was the fact that you can order — in one meal — one steak, one lobster, one chicken and every dessert on the menu! You have to try it one time to say you did it.
Here is a short video of our experience in Cozumel…we created a theme party for our group – so you will see the BLUE PEOPLE lol. My hubby created this amateur video…ENJOY…
Here is our cruise review: We give this cruise vacation package a 7, on a scale of one to ten! Ten is: bling bling on a string, ta dao how you like me now. One is doo doo brown (I know, it’s a very sophisticated rating system.) They delivered much higher value for the price…although the quality of the food was not that good.
Warning: the spa will get you by upselling you at the end. You are relaxed, get a full massage…and at the end these wonderful girls come and push and push product to try to get you to buy. Destroyed our spa experience lol…but it was still a great cruise.
Carnival Cruise to Galveston – enjoy the bloopers!
Thanks for the review. We have been on several cruises and agree 100% with your review & I actually read this before we went on our most recent cruise just a few weeks ago we ported out of New Orleans on Carnival & because of your review I decided to check out the Spa. I have always thought their prices were reasonable especially when they run at port or late evening specials & I always wondered if there was a catch?? Thanks to you I walked in with total confidence knowing I was going to be “sold” afterwards so I was able to ignore and tune out the high pressure sales!!! Thanks to you
I had an amazing spa experience & walked out spending $0 extra !!!! Thanks again!!!
