Review summary

We took this cruise because we had a friend going for the first time who really wanted us to go with them.  We had been on this same ship and itinerary years ago...but agreed anyway.  It was as much fun as the last time.  We did not plan to board with them, but there was no line and they got through almost as fast as we did. The mini golf was fun, even if I lost every time. The food was good and YTD worked well. We did our own walking tour of Key West and we took different shore tours in Cozumel.  I highly recommend the tequila factory tour.

Cabin / Stateroom

It was fin for an ocean view, would rather have had a balcony...but our friends were across the hall and we picked the OV to be near them.

Ship tip

Remember it is a small ship and the crew can be more friendly than on some of the bigger ones. Watch out you just might become addicted. ;)

Ports of call
