Well.... I guess everyone has their own opinion. As far as the beach goes, this was great. The drive there was a little long and then you tender over to the beach. I don't know maybe it's just me but I thought the hygiene was horrible. My husband and I went to the "open bar" to get a drink and we observed that when used plastic cups were returned to them, they stuck their hand in a glass of something white and ran their fingers around the rim, then dropped the cup in a bucket of milky looking water and then proceeded to take it out, fill with ice and re-use. Now I don't know about you but I found this very scary. I decided that I didn't need to drink anything the rest of the day. Now that was only on the rum punch and water. Corona's were in a bottle so my husband was happy. Other than that and some very very drunk passengers, everything was fine. Just stick to the beer and you will be OK. As far as $68.00 per person that is stretching it a bit. Water was very clear and beautiful. Have a great cruise
I suggest going to Playa Sol Beach. On Carnival the price is $29.00 pp and it's open bar, Very nice! Not too crowded, there is also a fresh water pool, a zoo and water toys, rentals, ect.. We went and had a Blast!
