Review summary

1st cuise - didnt know what to expect- we chose well with a deck - had breakfast served - no extra charge most mornings - our room attendant - beyond excellent - pleasant and helpful, which also represents most of the staff where ever we went. Only one bad bartender (beer bar) - so... you just don't go there. Martini bar bartenders should have their own show - they were amazing!! Dinner staff, speciality dining staff, people in the halls staff, coming on, going off, all were lovely people. I would suggest for entertainment areas for jazz emsemble, or disco night, or 20's night, they kinda got that, but dance area is small and not everyone can be included.

Should have signed up for the cave excursion, people we met said it was wonderful, walked around town - felt sketchy

Did the Tequila tour - tour guide - beyond excellent - location a little dumpy but then you realize - this is good standards - so you go with it - all in all - fun excursion

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

2 out of 5
Went to "all inclusive" beach - rip off - 45 minute bus ride from port - on a river with fresh water- no sandy beach - lots of pebbles - they say in the jungle - man they arent kidding - only thing missing is men with machine guns to keep you safe
