Too Much

This was our first cruise and most likely our last.  The first thing was a problem with our transfer to our ship which made us the last people to board; therefore, we were not allowed to freshen up or take our luggage to our room because they were waiting on us for the safety meeting.  Leaving the ship for shore excursions was difficult and time consuming.  We were late for our tour at Cozumel which left us no time to explore on our own before returning to the ship.  There were a lot of shows during the day when we were on shore but not during our last two cruise days.  Now for the things we liked.  Our room was great, the staff was great, and the food was great.  Maybe since this was our first cruise, we were expecting too much; but we felt we paid too much money for what we received.


Cabin / Stateroom
Was a little smaller than we expected but well appointed and had a good bed. The housekeeping staff was excellent.

We did tour of island, cameo jewelry and artwork, rumcake at a beautiful point, marine and archeological museum with some free time at an actual village not just a tourist stop. We had an excellent guide and it was great but you could buy the rum and rumcake cheaper at the ship store.


our cabin location was good. Fairly close to elevators at about the middle of the ship. Quiet and stable.
