Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We thought the food was just "OK". If this was someone's first cruise, I think they would be disappointed. There were no "grand buffets" or anything that stood out about the meals. They were rather plain.

We had a great experience in Key West. The port in Cozumel, however, was the best. We had great drinks, meals and shopping all without going very far. We met very friendly people in the port in Mexico.

Service and Staff

It was clean. Signage is hard to read.

Cabin / Stateroom

We were in a balcony suite and it was tight. We were glad that we had the balcony to get some fresh air.

Had the best time here!! We didn't leave the port but we were able to make a whole day out of eating, drinking and shopping. The employees of the different shops and restaurants were so nice!! It was the best part of our trip.
Don't Miss: Pancho's backyard!! You can have a drink in the sand and listen to live music.

Don't Miss: Kermit's Key Lime shoppe- you can eat Key Lime pie on a stick.

Pros: Key West and Cozumel port

Cons: the cruise ship
