Went snorkeling on the Jolly Roger, the snorkeling wasn't much to see but the tour afterwards with the animal and plant life was great.. Senic bus tour to the catamaran was eye opening.

Second time to Key West still enjoyed it very much took the Conch Train tour very informative at a low price. Shops were nice and people friendly.
Don't Miss: Conch train ride

Entered the shopping center and people were trying to entice you into the shops immediately would not let up. Diamonds International friendly but were also hi pressuring you into buying. Had a bad and costly drink at Margaritaville and could not wait to get back on the ship. Don't care if I ever go back and this is my second trip was the same the first time..

Pros: Cabin stewart was highlight of cruise, extremely helpful.

Cons: Partically obstructed balcony view , was 75% obstructed had to stand up and look towards the horizon to see the ocean. People in the shops were very rude made the comments that we were vultures and cold not wait 2 minutes on anything.

Recommends Costa Mediterranea? No.
