Amazing Time!!!

We had such an amazing time on our cruise!  There was so much to do each day!  The ship was ALWAYS clean and all of the staff were friendly!  It was so cool to watch the waitstaff at dinner in the main dining room each night!  They were SO efficient and always called us by name!  Jen, the cruise director, was a HOOT! I just cannot say enough about what a great time we had!  The ONLY complaint (and its not even really a complaint) I had was Progresso.  We did not plan an excursion so when we got off the ship, we rode the shuttle into town.  Once we got there, it was dirty and didn't look that safe...we got right back on the bus and went back to the ship.  The day ended up being our most relaxing....hung out at the pool and napped :)  I would suggest booking an excursion if you do anything in Progresso.  Cozumel was AMAZING!  We didn't book an excursion either and were so glad we didnt!  We found a local tour and were taken to a beautiful private beach club with snorkeling, swimming, great food and drink and Tequila Tasting!  It was only $30 a person.....The onboard excursions are way more than that!  We celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary onboard and were even treated to cake and singing at dinner!  We're already planning next years cruise and planning on taking our daughter (who will be 10)!!
