Review summary

Cozumel had a good excursion spot at Isla Pasion, food was just okay, not enough time. Loved the beach and relaxation.  


Enjoyed the Red Frog Pub and the bartender Josep on board the Valor. 70s and 80s trivia hosted by Frankie was fun. Cowboy Bill's 18+comedy show was funny!

Back adult swimming pool roof closed too much. 

Chichen Itza was okay---not enough time, hassled by trinket sellers inside the grounds of Chichen Itza---they should be outside of the grounds because it was difficult to relax and learn/hear guides without being bugged to buy something. 2 hour drive expected but not bad.

Not bad, bed a little uncomfortable. They kept it clean and organized every time we put out the door hangar

Ship tip

Adult swimming pool area was fun----Next to very quick bar service' too. Eat a Guys Burgers, Deli, Blue Iguana, and Rosie's Omelets. Restaurant own time is way to go--stay away from the chicken. Shrimp Cocktail was delicious. I Made and Marek were very nice waiter groups.
