Review summary

Can't say enough how fantastic Princess Cruises was compared to Carnival last year. Service and amenities were great and food was 100 percent better. They run a top-notch operation and would use them again. Enjoyed excursions to the Mayan ruins, Guide Daniel Balam was  terrific fun and well informed. Also liked the tequila tasting tour even though I don't like tequila. Guide Martin was very funny and informative as well. It was a great trip south of the border.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a balcony on deck 10 when coming onboard. It made the experience so much better to have a view of the outside.

Ship tip

Food at the buffets some nights were even better than the food in the traditional dining rooms. Can't say enough about the quality of the offerings.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

Cozumel, Mexico

Be sure to do a shore excursion. They're great.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Again, do a shore excursion to the ruins. Pier shopping touristy and not much to speak of.
