Be aware: you can not drink the water on the ship. not even to rinse your mouth after brushing your teeth. bathroom always had a terrible ordor. decor of the ship was so tacky. we have been on many cruises and this was the first time, that we decided NOT to eat in the dining room because the food was just as bad as the why bother dressiing up??? water slide was hardly EVER open for the kids too...

beautiful port. went snorkeling and got stung by a portugese man-of-war so that stunk! a lot of people did from the ship...loved the town...great restaurants, shops. i would love to go back there and stay for a week there.
Don't Miss: Sammy Haggar'd bar "Cabo Wabo"--great live bands and drinks were great!! :)

another dirty city...we ended up paying to hang out at a gold crown resort. i was surprised at how ugly the beaches were. it seem i was looking at the same ocean from home (cape cod) ...not impressed at all
Don't Miss: local mexican restaurant that served the best nachos i ever had!!
