Review SummaryHad a wonderful time on the ship, wish it could of been longer. The casino was great and had good pay outs on the "craps table". The passengers were very friendly. We met several who live within a few miles of our home. Our staff overall were superb! Especially...Manolito (our formal dining waiter) was very hospitable. The port of Cozumel was fantastic! The diving was awesome and the guides were very professional. The restaurant on the beach at the diving site was excellent! The shops were great, but the prices were not that great for jewelry. Next time...we plan to ride the scooters (vespas) around the island for a tour on our own. The port of Progresso was great. The shopping was excellent and the prices for jewelry, liquor and other items were very good. The water was very pretty, but not as clear as cozumel. The food was good at one of the outdoor restaurants' across from the beach. The beer was awesome and very cheap in the town of progresso. Great hospitality around town as well. The cuisine on the ship especially the formal dining room was very good and plenty to go around. Ship overall rating was very good ( an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10).
Pros: The food, casino and the days at sea!
Cons: Trip not long enough.
