Review SummaryPROS: We departed from Tampa. The terminal was spotless and getting on the ship was flawless. We LOVED the food and the service was wonderful. Every meal (dining room and buffet) was A+. Our cabin was very tidy and very comfortable (loved the bed). Plenty of drawers for clothing and what not. The ship itself was beautiful and elegant. Tons of private nooks to sit in and relax. We loved Kevin Brando in the piano bar (even purchased one of his CD's). Getting off of the ship in the 2 ports that we visited (Cozumel & Costa Maya) were easy. Departing from the ship on our last day was a breeze! VERY ORGANIZED.
CONS: We never took into consideration that we would be traveling during Spring Break. What a nightmare! Drunk college kids yelling and running in the halls until 3:30 in the morning. Sleeping was hit or miss (lots of misses). The ship's security didn't seem to have that under control.
Also, even if you think you're getting a great price on a cruise, don't be fooled. EVERYTHING costs money on board...even BINGO! There were 3 different BINGO packages to choose from and the cheapest was $22 per person for only 4 games (3 cards per game)!! Unreal! This is BINGO we're talking about. They seemed to cater to the college kids and the older adults. Not too much to do for our age group (even the "Name That Tune" show was 50's & 60's music). Drinks are high priced and we ran out of things to do. By day 5 were were glad to be going home.
Pros: The Food & Service!
Cons: Spring Breaker's!
