Review Summary

We left Miami and stopped at Key West and Cozumel. I was excited since i have not visited Key West or Cozumel. I was surprised that Key West was in such great shape. They are still working on the clean up from the hurricane . They dodged a bullet. The "Cozumel by Land and Sea" were a great excursion. We got to see the coral reef, fishes and scuba divers in the comfort of air conditioned boat. Even with all these wonderful things, the nasty tasting food made the whole trip bad. This was my first and last cruise.

Food and Dining

Food was awful. It was cold and nasty. It was bad at the buffet, Atlantic Dining Room and Pacific Dining Room. The pizza tasted awful but at least it was hot. Breakfast was bad, Hamburger for lunch was bad, dinner was bad The bananas had large black blemishes. One person said he would get me some that looked better but he never came back. I asked other people and they agreed the food was bad. Only person said it was ok. She is a travel agent and had been on over 100 cruises. She said she had worse.

steel drum was excellent and shows were good. The bad food just affected everything else.

Ship Quality

Some parts of the boat were difficult to find. In some cases you had to go down 2 floors, walk to the other end and then go up to floors to get to the comedy club and other places.
