Great Trip!

I would definitely recommend this trip.  The food was amazing!!!  My families favorite was the melting cake but try the Bitter and Blanc when you get the opportunity.  It's amazing and they only serve it one night. :(  

A few suggestions....  If you are going to Progresso book your excursion on the ship!  This is not a place you want to be walking the streets.   We booked online and the bus didn't take us to the correct place and we ended up walking through town.  Excursions booked through the ship were there waiting at port!  Cozumel is much nicer!  No worries booking online for Cozumel. 

The pool area was very crowded all the time.  Would have been nice to have a larger pool and more than 2.  

Didn't like the idea of having to go to the bar to get a Coke.  The soda situation needs to be rethought.

Come the night before and stay a night. Makes your trip alot less stressful.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
DO NOT book this excursion on line. Book it on the ship! This is not a town you want to be walking through. Encountered many drunks at 9:00 am. If you book through the ship then they will pick you up at port. If not then you have to try to get to the right place on your own. Our bus driver took us to the wrong place and then we had to walk to the correct place.
Cozumel, Mexico
Must do the buggy, mayan heritage and snorkel excursion. It was fantastic!!!!!!!! Highly recommend. The guides were funny and and very informative.


If you are a soda drinker buy the refillable cup. It is about $35 but will save you money in the long run.

Guys Burgers is delicious! A must stop on Lido deck.

24 hour ice cream and pizza was a favorite of my girls. Yummy thin crust pizza.
