Review summary

Was frustrated with the drink package policy when it came to water. You can order a water with an alcoholic drink, but if you order an alcoholic drink and no water, the 5 minuet rule applies. You have to wait 5 minutes to get a water. Come on, really? God forbid we stay hydrated.

It was very chaotic and disorganized. Been on many cruises and have never experienced such a long and frustrating embarkation.

Best band at the United States Bar!

Cabin / Stateroom

Comfort and size were acceptable. I had to request clean window drapes. They were full of dust. Most surfaces were also too dusty. Probably explains why I coughed and sneezed all night long.

Ports of call

Key West, Florida

Key West is just fine after Hurricane Irma. Please go!

Cozumel, Mexico

Cozumel is always fun. Went to Mr Sanchos for the first time. Loved it since we were the only boat in port. Almost had the place to ourselves.
