This was a great cruise and we enjoyed it so much.  The shore excursions were the best both in Cozumel and Progresso. On board charges were a bit high...$25 to play bingo and having to buy even bottled water left us thirsty most of the time we were not at meals.  The wait staff and the casino people were just great and the ease of getting on the ship was great.

Ship Tip

Enjoyed breakfast the most because you had such choices and the relaxed atmosphere was great for relaxing. However our evening meals were delightful mostly because of the wait staff.

Put the travel time from town to the ship into your time frame. It took longer than expected.
