The Hurricane Trip
This cruise was scheduled to go to the Bahamas and two other ports. With Hurricane Mathew we diverted to Cozumel Mexico to avoid the weather. Most would say that going to Cozumel is a better deal for the cruise, but I have been to Cozumel a few times. This was the first time cruising with Royal Caribbean and was looking forward to the up talk of the cruise line. We have always cruised with Carnival Cruise line and I will say we will stay with Carnival. The crew was okay, but not helpful. The dinning crew (Mr. Mario and Mr. Bing) were excellent and very attentive. Thank you for that experience. The room was okay, but a little small compared to the Suite that Carnival provides. All said I would go for a discounted price without my children, but never again with my children. Ages 9, 19, & 13.
