Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
All the decor was very pretty and everybody was very nice I just wasn't impressed as much with the food. We went to the steakhouse on the first night of the cruise and the crab cakes were really good.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We really didn't do much on the ship we mainly just stayed on Deck 10 because that's one of the only places you can smoke at.


4 out of 5
The comedy club was amazing and the hosts we're really good. But we went to a country show and that was really bad we ended up walking out after two songs.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
For the most part everyone was really nice. We stayed with one bartender the whole Cruise his name was Dodi and he was amazing he even played us a few songs on the guitar on the very last night we will miss him very much.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
All of the tables when people were eating were clean for the most part.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Everyone told us that the cabins were really small before we went on our first cruise so we went ahead and got a balcony and it was perfect for Just the Two of Us. How are Stuart was very nice and brought us everything that we asked of his name was ketut.

Ship Tip

If you don't have any kids sleep in and stay up late that's when all of the good shows are.

We went to a wedding and parasailing at mr. Sancho's we also had a lunch the fish tacos are amazing and the Pina Coladas are the best I've ever had.

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

4 out of 5
It wasn't as nice as Cozumel but still very nice people. We went to an all-inclusive resort about 30 minutes out and got massages which were great.


5 out of 5
Again we have faster to the fun so we had a speedy disembarkation.
