Great Cruise

Sail Date: September 01, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is very pleasant. It is going for refurbishment in May. For our needs it was satisfactory. We only wanted to get away and relax so we weren't looking for much. We had been to all of the stops before. The pool chairs are probably the one item that isn't keep real clean. Absolutely like the way they do check ins and out. Very quick. On Carnival it took us 3 hours to get on and off and this was total standing time. Very painful.

Pros: The shows were fantastic. Every show was great to look at. The cruise director was very good, not playing at his regular work role, but as a different character in other events such as karoake. He was a very good comedian. Like the fact that we can self-assist at end of cruise.

Cons: Not much we didn't like. There were some technical difficulties that I thought were handled well. Since ship was late in arriving, difficult for those traveling by air. That is when it is a benefit to book with cruise line.

Miami, Florida
Miami isn't our favorite city. Ship stopped at 4 pm and left at 10 pm. This trip it rained so we didn't leave the ship.
Key West, Florida
It has a nice atmosphere, but beaches aren't so great. Water is beautiful though.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Nice relaxing stop for cruise members. The town of Mihahual is much different than we are used to. If you like to drink, it would be a good place to visit. Tables are right on the water's edge in the sand. If there was a beach it would be nice. If I were the locals, I would have done it differently. For staying at the actual port site is much nicer. Shopping is slightly better at Cozumel for most things, but sometimes can get better deal at Costa Maya.
Port Canaveral, Florida
We have been there twice and it really is a pit stop for the cruise ship. Don't like the excursions there.

Water is beautiful in Cozumel. Didn't like the way that the many natives kept hounding you to go into there store.
