Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Gary (Sports Medicine) & Cherry Ann (Massage therapist) are the best in the spa! For dining - sit with Felix & Yao or Praveen & Made! Tomas was the best room steward ever!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Layout was perfect... Access is easy to all locations on the ship! Common areas were well maintained! Staff had all patrons sanitize their hands as walking in/out of restaurants.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin 3154 was clean, the bed was comfortable and the room offered plenaty of space for two.

Ship tip

Wait to book drink package and excursions! Once onboard - I was offered 10% off on excursions. I bought the drink package early on (5-6 months) but found deals as the embark date got closer (2-3 months).

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

5 out of 5
Great fun! Stayed at the Hilton which has a swim up bar/resturant.

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

5 out of 5
Didn't spend much time at the port, given we went to the Mayan ruins - Chichen Itza. Be prepared for a 2 hr bus (AC) ride, then 2 hour tour + 1 hour self tour, before taking a 2 hour ride back. Great for catching up on your naps! If you take the Mayan ruins tour of Chichen Itza from Cozumel - the bus ride is 3 hours one way, 45 minute tour and then three hours back - so I would highly recommend taking the tour from Progreso.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
We had a BLAST on the drive your own motor boat & snorkle tour - hosted by Aiomar Adventures! See pic and follow Aviomar Tours on Facebook! After driving the boat... relax pool side with freshly made guacuamole and chips + an adult beverage!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Simple and quick!!
