Four day cruise to Cozumel was relaxing.  We enjoyed the ship, the food, staff and the new friends we made.  We never had a problem finding a lounge.  The spa was excellent.


We loved our excursion on Cozumel to the Chankanaab beach adventure park.  We had a guide named Fernando.  He went the extra mile to show us the yellow sting rays on the bottom, a lobster hiding in a rock and many other interesting fish.  It was just a lovely day snorkeling and sampling tequila.  We also bartered for a silver necklace that was unique and beautiful.    


We have been on larger ships, but we found this ship at this time to be perfect with around 2200 passengers.  We played pool, went to some shows and sang in the pub on the last night wrapping up an excellent vacation.

One thing I missed is that they didn't have a drink of the day.

We enjoy listening to the ocean at night. This was not the largest balcony cabin we have ever stayed in, but we kept the suitcases under the bed and it worked out fine. It was quiet.

Ship Tip

If you want to sit on lounge chairs together try to be out by 9-9:30AM. You can always eat your breakfast by the pool, taking turns going into the Windjammer and bringing it back. Don't forget that there is also food nearby at the Park Ave area and for lunch they bring out picnic food like subs.

Clearwater is only 45 minutes away, we stayed there after the cruise. With the UBER app on your phone you will save on transportation. The cruise line was efficient!
