Review Summary

Loved the relaxation,the service was great and the staff was so friendly and great. My daughter and I took this cruise together. Our first for both of us. Our room was as expect and space was good. We had twin beds which were comfortable. Slid our suitcases under the beds which saved on space. Buddy was our stewart (I think that what he was) and the best. We had fresh ice through out the day. My daughter had insulin to keep cool and he made sure we had our ice. The room was always clean and neat.  

    The food was the greatest in the Lido room. They could improve on the fried chicken: a little overdone and dry. Always had a goodexpected other than that, very good food. 

    Was disappointed in Guy's burgers. Really didn't expect to make my own burger and weren't made fresh as I expected. 

    Drinks were very good. Large and plenty of liquor in them. Loved all the fruit flavors.

    Our excursion was Save the Sea Turtles in Cozumel . We loved it. Mario our guide was fabulous. So informative about the history of the turtles and Myan people. We did a little shopping ,visited a Myan village and our group saved 22 baby turtles. Yeepee. 

    We spend our time in Progress shopping, ate some great Casadeas and Pica Degio. Very good and price was really cheap. Just a relaxing day of fun. 


    Overall we loved our cruise and would diffidently do it again 


The cons: the lady on the ship that did the announcements talked way to fast. Im sure we missed some info because of this.  Need some direction signs on board ship that shows were things are. We stayed lost the 1st 2 days. With 10 decks , just need a better system than they have. The staff could speak some English but was not fluent and could not really answer very many specific questions. 

      We loved our cruise Love
