Wow, apparently you were staying on a different part of the ship I was in. My stewardess took better care of me than my mother AND my doctor. Chocolate on my pillow every night. Ice in the bucket replaced twice daily. I talked to a couple of deckhands who were chipping and painting all along the Sports Court and railings. Cartagena was (relatively) clean, friendly, and gorgeous to look at--totally photogenic with the colonial architecture. The entertainment was---so bad I slept through that "comedian" Fred Deville or whatever he was named. The Motown group was decent. The dancers were--amateurish. Costa Maya was the WORST--completely artificial Disney-like tourist stop. Nothing to do but shop for overpriced jewelry, eat overpriced Tex-Mex crap. Get out of town to the ruin.
