My wife and I sailed 11/12-11/16 from Miami to Key West and Cozomel. We are both first timers.Embarking was no big deal. Final disembarking was 1 hour, as you will be waiting in designated areas, and if you have children (we have 2 boys, ages 2 & 3.5), God Bless you for your patience.At Key West, a shuttle was provided from the ship to the mainland. But not at Cozumel. The tours are a bit pricey and the natives are restless at the port. We had a piece of bread that we brought from the ship and my son threw it in the water and a school of beautiful fish devoured it in seconds.As for the cabin, four people in 180-square-feet is too small. T.V. had six channels, two are advertising, one is video diary.I would give 4-5 stars for service. I will rate the food quality in the dining room average and presentation a step above the Macaroni Grill. Buffet was a 2-3 star, same as a Bennigans. Desserts were disappointing.A lot of nite life and activities. Camp Carnival pretty much saved our vacation. They entertained the kids from late P.M. Shows are good and Chris, the cruise director, was humerous.If you drink, you'll really enjoy yourself as it truly is one big party, but everything else is a la carte. Dollar value is good and I will end this review saying "You get what you pay for." Rochelle62@aol.comI'll write back
