5 Day Carnival Cruise

Recommended Posts

My husband and I can't decide on a 5 day cruise for our 1 year anniversary. We would love to do a longer cruise however due to our jobs and cost, we cannot. I'm looking for recommendations on 5 day cruises and which ship. We did Valor out of New Orleans to Progreso and Cozumel for our honeymoon, we loved it, just looking for some different options.

Dates? Specific departure ports? In 2021, I would recommend that Carnival Breeze sailing from Galveston to Mexico. But if you are looking for options in 2020, then choose the Carnival Dream sailing from Galveston to Mexico.

Yes, Carnival Dream has a 5-day cruise from Galveston in September 2020.

Since you've been to Coz, there's a 5 day outta Miami to Grand Cayman + Ocho Rios that's great. I did this years ago on the Destiny (now Sunshine). HIGHLY recommend Stingray City in GC.

If I were picking one just based on the ship it would be Dream...or even better Breeze in 2021. But those are Cozumel, progreso which you’ve already done. If you can get to grand cayman as someone mentioned I’d do it. Stingrays and turtles are great excursion options. I’ve done both but I think I like the turtles better.  Dunn’s River Falls if you go to Ocho Rios.

Since you are in Indiana, I think your options are endless since you will have to travel to a port regardless.  Go on the Carnival website, do a side by side comparison of several of the ships that offer 5-day cruises in your date range and see what looks best.

Good answer! Too many variables for us on the forum to answer without playing 20 questions.

Ehhhh....everyone has different criteria.  It is a shot in the dark to have random people recommend things especially since the choices are so similar to each other.

My two cents are more port related. If Costa Maya is a port option, I love Maya Chan. You can look them up to see. The water isn't the best if you are looking for clear water, it has a lot of sea grass. But the place is fantastic! It's a cool hangout for a relaxing day with an open bar and a very tasty lunch. My daughters still talk about it. We are going again on a 5-day in March. When we are Cozumel, we do Nachi Cocom which I love (booked again, also and it will be my 5th time) but if I had to choose one, Maya Chan would be it.
