This was our first cruise, so we can't compare it to past experiences. However, generally we noticed the ship was clean and well organized. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The evening entertainment was impressive and beyond our expectations - don't get me wrong, it's not Broadway "good," but certainly on par with a standard professional production. Evening Comic Happy Cole was excellent and a true professional. Tops.

Food and Dining

Excellent food. The Chocolate Melting Cake was tops.

Cabin / Stateroom

Was expecting coffin sized rooms, instead the rooms turned out to be excellent and spacious given the circumstances.
3 out of 5
Aside from a couple decent "excursions," it's a tourist trap.
Don't Miss: Swimming with Dolphins at Dolphinaris.

Could spend a week here. Loved it.
Don't Miss: Duval Street.

Pros: The food. Plentiful, high quality, and all you can eat.

Cons: Cozumel Mexico is a tourist trap.
