Room Type: Oceanview

Staff & food was wonderful. Cozumel was great but will avoid any cruise that has a port of call to Calia! There is nothing in Calica, NOTHING,not even a port! It's a rock quarry. Only shopping is a few 10 x 10 tents selling overprices trinkets, they wanted $27 for the same earrings I bought the day before in Cozumel for $2. Started to go back to ship and sell the vendor mine for $10 a pair! If you only want to shop have to take a taxi for $25.00 or rent a car going to Cancun for around $50.

Pros: Relaxing

Cons: Calica
