Review summary

Loved the ship, hated the ports. I feel like we always visit the same ports and they just get more and more crowded. The ship was fresh and new and the staff was great. We loved the trivia and PG comedy shows. The kids had a blast at the sports area as there were so many different things to play. The food was exceptional.

We did the river tubing safari and loved it. Food at the end was WAY over priced but drinks were reasonable. I think we were lucky to be in a smaller group as those that arrived on busses were in huge groups.

George Town, Grand Cayman

We went to Calico Jacks. Bar was cool, food was good and prices were reasonable but chairs were PACKED in leaving no beach and it was crazy crowded.

Cozumel, Mexico

We loved Playa Mia in the past but it was super crowded this time. There were 7 ships in port and I heard everywhere was crowded. Lots for the kids to go but probably wouldn’t go back. Last time we did the all inclusive. This time we just did entry and bought our food and drink separate. Menu was much better than the buffet and drink options are better. Actually ended up spending less.

Super easy. We always get a porter because you make it through customs faster. He showed us the shorter line.
