Review SummaryCalled after learning of "No travel except for emergency" alert. Was told I could not cancel trip without forfeting all money. Shortly after sailing all persons on board were told Mexican ports were closed. Were told there would be alternative stops. Those stops never happened. Spent entire 5 day vacation on ship circling in gulf.
Only consideration was the return of $40 port charge not used in Mexico. Called Cruise line after return. No one would address concerns.

Pros: absolutely nothing. Poor food. Old, improperly maintained ship.
Cons: delayed departure. Ports in Mexico cancelled shortly after sailing. No alternative ports. Returned to Galveston a day early.
