Review summary

It was very fun I do have one thing I would like to put in here since there’s not a space to put something you dislike really my daughter got sick the last day we were at sea and they kept on telling me my daughters temperature was fine when indeed it was not and they didn’t want to do the rectal temperature I had to do it myself and she end up having 103.6 fever instead of 98 because under the arm is not accurate at all don’t get me wrong they were very friendly and nice and trIRS to help me with my daughter but they need to understand that they should do the rectal temperature for young children my daughter is only one years old and had extremely high fever....

They had yummy choices every night to choose from and we had the most awesome waiter Mr. D (Darmadi) ever he even surprised us with our daughters first birthday cake and treated us just like family.... we were kind of sad we didn’t get to tell him by because our daughter was sick the last day so we didn’t get to go to dinner

I did not like this place at all I probably would’ve liked it if we would’ve had an excursion but we didn’t and we had people in our face a lot and we even had people trying to get us to go places with them and stuff like that it overall sucked then at the very end we found Margaritaville where the beach was at and wish they would have told us about it from the beginning so we could’ve just enjoyed the beach

George Town, Grand Cayman

It was beautiful and people were really nice and they didn’t try to pressure you to buy stuff and we did the turtle excursion and it was really fun and my daughter enjoyed it

Cozumel, Mexico

When you first get off the boat it’s a tourist area right there so things are kind of pricey but you can go through to the other side and enjoy everything and it’s a lot cheaper overall we had fun and we did not have an excursion we just had fun and shopped

It was fine it was easy and went pretty fast considering there was almost 3000 people on there that they got off
