What a great trip to Cozumel !! The food was great !! Lots of options for eating. The pool could have been bigger, but it had the tube slide, which lots of people and children used. Not enough places for smokers. Pretty much had to stay at the pool or the casino and they still cut half of the smoking area because the bar at the pool was closed on the non smoking side and they only gave smokers 5 seats at the bar on the smoking side. All the bars are non smoking except the casino bar, but once again only allowed 5-6 seats for smokers and most of the bars were empty. Seemed kind of a waste

There were lots of activities to go to that appealed to everyone. The trivia activities were great !! The staff were all wonderful !! Loved all the different towel animals !! The cruise director was a hoot !! He went down the slide with all his clothes on !! Very funny !! The room was great too, not too big and not too small.

Cozumel was wonderful, although not enough time for shopping because of the time of our shore excursion. I think that should have been first thing in the morning as we did the amazing Cozumel race. It didn't start until 1130 and it got hot !! Great shore excursion !!! Would recommend that to everyone !! Got to see Cozumel in a totally different way and learned a lot too.

 All in all great trip and would recommend this to everyone.
