This was our 25th wedding anniversary cruise. I did much research in determining our cruise and we were not disappointed. The staff was incredible in all areas. Very helpful and always polite. We chose this cruise for the number of ports we visited (4) in a short period of time as we didn't want to be sailing all the time.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
My husband and I aren't really fussy in this area. We really enjoyed the buffets but they can be crowded at times. We never went away hungry! The dinners in the evening were good but not outstanding. Our waiter was great and very attentive. We had the early dinner and at times, we felt rushed out because of the next dinner group.....didn't have much time to sit and chat after eating.

There is much to do, depending on your likes and dislikes. We went to every show and they were great, especially the comedians. We like the fact that it was clean fun. A lot of talent on these ships.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We loved the staff. Never did we feel like we were bothering them. Considering they are on the ship for months at a time, working day after day, they were always pleasant, helpful, and polite.

Ship Quality

Overall, ship was clean but in some areas could use a touch up of paint. In some areas, the glass wasn't as clean.....had water spots that never seemed to be taken care of but it was not a big deal.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had a Jr Suite and it was wonderful. It was always clean, no matter when we left, when we came back, it was cleaned again. These guys are incredible!

We took the tour of the city, turtle farm and town of hell. It was just ok. The town of hell is really tacky and nothing special.

Went cave tubing. Be prepared before you go as they don't let you know everything. It's a rough, long, hot walk to the cave on stony ground. Bring money for water shoes (if you don't have any -- don't wear flip flops as it's really rough terrain), food, and pictures. We enjoyed the cave tubing but it can be exhausting if you aren't up for it.

We loved the Maya Key Private Island. Was very clean and relaxing. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Took the Ruins of Tulum tour. Our guide was so passionate about the ruins and his country. The beach there is beautiful too.

Pros: Staff was great!

Cons: Smoke in casino
