Review summary

This was a small family cruise and we all had a great time. We had dinner together most nights, went to various activities and shows together, and explored the islands together. The cruise allowed us to spend quality time together but also allowed time to spend independently to rest or watch movies. I would certainly do another family cruise.

I have cruised several times and while this was seemless and we boarded quickly, in the past the persons checking our documents provided some direction. This time, there was none. My family that had never cruised before were very confused on the next steps as there was no direction given.

Our room steward was excellent...always smiling and singing and telling us what times things were happening. The waiters were all very nice and seemed to enjoy their jobs.

Amazing!!! We'd not seen a scenic overview room before and were pleasantly surprised to see the wall sized window overlooking the front of the ship. It was such a nice treat and I'd definitely book that room type again.

We toured the island and learned a great deal about the people. It was very nice. I would have liked more time there though.

Cozumel, Mexico
