Was okay. My mom was sore & bruised from falling backward on the escalator because she was told to keep her room key out in her hand, so she couldn't get a grip on the moving hand rail while holding her suitcase in her other hand. The Hurricane was stressful, didn't sleep whole night & everything canceled in Cozumel. Food was great & staff hard working.

There's no signs telling you to go upstairs, or which lines to get in ... Kinda chaotic.

Delicious meals

Onboard Activities

Pools were very small. Didn't get to use the slide at all because of long lines & too crowded. Hot tubs were great, but the Aft ones were almost impossible to climb into if your over 55 because of the removable step plates that flip on you when you put your foot/weight on them.

Comfortable beds & spacious room, but very noisy medal banging below us almost every night.

Ship Tip

Eat in the dining rooms every meal possible because the food is excellent.

Tampa, Florida Did not visit port

Pretty fast, but wish there was a place to wait for your ride inside with air-conditioning.
