Review summary

The trip and cruise was great overall! There were only a few concerns: the drink prices on board started at $9 but were mostly $13 plus gratuities. Which was ridiculous for a Mai Tai or simple drink on board. So if you plan on drinking just buy the drink package. Also, having two Mexico ports was pretty boring. Cozumel was fine but Puerto Maya can be dropped. Change it to Puerto Vallarta or something. The shows were outstanding and so was the dining room food. If you are wanting to experience this ship but it’s too expensive, opt for an inside room. Still was decent size and I didn’t miss the balcony.

It’s not a donut shop! It was an outdoor container that housed donuts and they were the worse donuts ever!

My daughter loved this! Try to do this on port days because it gets overly crowded on cruising days! The instructors were friendly and took time showing my daughter what to do.

The only thing about Nassau is that you have to do an excursion to get to better beaches!

Cozumel, Mexico

Most of the Beach we saw had too much seaweed to enjoy!
