This is a small, older ship. There is not much to do aboard the ship. We had a storm the first and second day and had virtually nothing to do. The activities that were available were poor. The shows were also poor. The food was ok, but the lobster and steaks were tough. The other thing that was most upsetting was that the ships computers were down when we arrived. (we arrived at the port approx 30min prior to allowed boarding.) It took 3.5hrs to board the ship d/t they had to do everything by hand. They did not offer any compensation what so ever.

Pros: a quick gettaway cruise. Food was pretty good and they house keeping crew was good and friendly.

Cons: too small of ship. Not many activities on board and the activites that were available were poor. Had bad storm and boat rocked a lot first 2 days. Steaks and lobster served were tough and over cooked.

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? No.

Service and Staff
Cozumel, Mexico
small island and not much to do except water activities and beach and shopping. All of the water sports were cancelled d/t the previous days storm. If you go there I would recommend not taking any excursions and just renting a scooter and roam the island and public beaches. Unless you can snorkel and do water activities.
Don't Miss: beaches are beautiful.
