As a first time cruiser celebrating our first wedding anniversary, this was a great way to break into this type of vacation. A few pointers though (that I will make sure to check into before we book again...Make sure you don't book on a majority-elderly cruise. We had our toes run over several times by Hoover-rounds and most of these people were just down right mean. I am almost 40 years old and have been a Registered Nurse for for over 10 years, so I know how to handle this population at work, but to have to deal with this on a 6 day trip?! I don't know what would be worst, College Kids on spring break or hanging out in God's waiting room. 

On the upside: The staff was phenomenal, the drink package was worth every penny, and I would definitely travel Royal Caribbean again   

Cabin / Stateroom
A great cabin and our steward, Bobby, was awesome! He paid such attention to the little things, like seeing a bottle of wine on our counter and bringing/leaving wine glasses for us without us asking to...or recommending the sushi restaurant when we were tired of eating in the dining hall.

Not impressed with Cozumel at all but I would give it another chance considering the crowd we were surrounded by
