My daughter and I took this cruise together to get away from the winter weather in Ohio. Despite her getting seasick on the first day at sea...we had a great time!
We were disappointed that there wasn't a waterslide in the kid's area on the ship. They did have their own pool and hot tub area, but we didn't see them utilize it. They stayed, mostly at the main pool area and then made it difficult for the adults to enjoy the hot tubs in that area.
Dennis, our steward, was great! We asked him for ice the very first evening & never had to ask for it again! He made sure that our ice bucket was filled each afternoon/evening.
We didn't book excursions ahead of time. We "freelanced" the day at Mr. Sancho's in Cozumel. The beach was beautiful & we stayed there until time to reboard the ship. We did buy an all-inclusive in Progreso from the locals for the Technotel Beach...San Benito. It was cheaper than the ship & included our ride to and from. The food and drinks were great...the beach no where near as nice as the ones in Cozumel.
All in all, it was a great getaway and my daughter's first cruise. She really enjoyed herself & looks forward to taking another!

they need to put an extra person in the Pizza area....there were always people in line waiting & frequently "buzzing" for assistance.
