Review summary

We liked the cruise. Our balcony room was very nice and well taken care of. For some crazy reason, nearby people would slam their door going to the balcony at all hours of the day and night. Plus there was lots of hallway talking going on all night. Very disturbing.

The cafeteria food was OK at best, but the hamburger shop and sandwich shop was excellent. We watched a movie out on the pool deck one night which was vey enjoyable. The comedian club offered excellent entertainment. Some of the local bars offered very good entertainment.

The excursions were good. You get what you pay for. You need to realize that you are in very depressed economic areas and you will see and be subjected to lots of panhandlers.

We really enjoyed the zip lining in Mahogany Bay and the Mayan ruins tour in Costa Maya. Waiting for the bus connection back to the ship from zip lining was very long and uncalled for.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Cafeteria food was OK at best. Hambuger and pizza stand was excellent. We paid extra for steak one night. Not worth the extra cost - $35 each.

The ship seems to be "broken up" - hard to get from one area to another.

Except for the noise from people slamming their balcony door and hallway talking all night long

The Mayan Ruins are great. But the ships schedule shortens this excursion too much
