Majestic Casino

It was a Very Nice Casino for its size! But they really need to do something about the Smoke from the Smokers!

I'll give them one star for the two women who weighted on me! The guy... I told him about my Air Conditioning in my room and how it seemed to be drawing in cigarette smoking smell and he said tell your Cabin Stewart! I told him I did! I just don't want to be billed for an Extra Cleaning! Anything else? WTF, It's like he didn't care!

The Service & Staff was Excellent! Just the Best in The Industry! Perhaps they should send the one customer service representative back to classes!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was one of the Smallest Cabins I've ever been in! But it had a Nice Obeonce about it! Only problem was when I turn on the Air Conditioning the room filled with the smell of Cigarette Smoke! I told our Cabin Stewart and him said he could also smell it! He couldn't track it down! So we did without the Air!

Ship tip

It's an Older & Smaller Ship then the new ones! It seemed to have a lot of rocking (motion)! Besides that - It was Very Clean and Posized A a Lot of Charm!

Our first stop was the Semi Submarine! It was just ok! Next we drove pass the Governor's Mansion, then pass Seven Mile Beach, with all the Condos, lining the Beach front! Then on to the Rum Cake Shops, from their to the Turtle Center! This was the Best part of the Excursion! Lots of Turtles and you could pick them up and take photos of you holding the small ones! Nice Gift Shop! Then the tour went to "He_ _" ! (lol) Small place, but you can say you really went to "He_ _"! You got proof, show them your Passport Stamped from "He_ _"! Then a Lovely Drive back to town for an hour of shopping! Well worth it! Beautiful Island! Next Cozumel! My wife talked me into the Cooking Class! Ok Guy's don't Laugh! This was Probably the Best Excursion I've Ever Had! Master Chief Louis was Great! Very Entertaining & Hilarious! Had a Great time and Great Food! No to mention Great Margaritas! Very Beautiful Location! My Favorite Margarita was the Pineapple Margarita! Very Excellent! Best part of the cruise was this Excursion!

Disembarking was like any other cruise! Except this time I hired a Porter to take my luggage! We where out in about 10 minutes! It was well worth the $5.00!
