We took out grandkids on the 4 night to Cozumel cruise. This is just the right amount of time, kids loved the slide into the pool, the soft serve ice cream and the shows. Their first time out of the country was a hit in Cozumel. We went to a beach club that had all inclusive drinks and food. It had a nice pool with swim up bar and a lovely beach with palapas. Over all a great experience.

We didnt particiapte in the on board activities. We ususally just want to relax on a cruise.

The entertainment was ok. My granddaughter loved the shows, first time seeing anything like it and thought they were awesome.

Children's Programs

The kids never went. I signed them up but they preferred to play in the pool. I do wish the kids program included pool time but because they didnt the kids did not want to participate so it was not quite as relaxing for me as I was hoping since I had to stay glued to the pool to supervise them.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Since we had the grandkids with us I was concerned about how it would work with the bunk beds, I shouldnt have worried. The kids loved the beds and it is amazing how well it all worked.

Ship Tip

Sunsets were beautiful from the dining room. Definitely hit the dining room brunch - NO LINES! and great service

Be patient, it does take a while to reboard the ship.
