Review summary

Had fun, would have been much better if the food was good. Lots of fun things to do and the restaurant "Elation", should have stated dress code......my partner was turned away after our excursion returned more than 45 minutes late getting us back to the ship and all he wanted to do at that point was to sit down and eat.

yes, the excursion should have stated excessive walking, total walked was 7.8 miles from point of arrival to end of excursion......this should be documented in your excursion description. Most disappointed that we were not able to browse in the shops of Cozumel.
