Review SummaryThe embarkation process moved along fairly quickly. When we reached our room, we had a porthole instead of the window we thought we had but not much to see anyway.
Since we are not too fond of eating with a group of strangers, we headed for the buffet for our first dinner. What a disappointment! A very small cafeteria choice! No wide array of choices like our previous cruises. And it never got any better.
Our first stop was SUPPOSED to have been Costa Maya but an emergency medical evcauation forced us to go straight to Cozumel. Because of this, we had to rearrange our tours which cut down on our choices,especially since we don't snorkel.
The tour to Tulum to see the ruins was great. The tour guide was very informative and helpful. The downside was that it took the ship over an hour to get us tendered and off to our tour.
Sailing back to Mobile was torture for some people as the ship tossed and seemed to jump the waves for about 24 hours. The debarkation process was slow. We decided to walk off with our luggage and while waiting in line, we saw people who had walked off with us retrieving their luggage from the luggage holding area which really ticked us off.
