Not able to enjoy Belize or Cozumel ports due to bad weather so I have nothing to say about excursions. The waiters I had at my table were great. Traveled with my 4 year old granddaughter and she fell asleep at the table prior to being served. He made sure the next days she had her food right away in case she fell asleep again. I had the premium drink package and I should have drank beer or wine so the bartenders couldn't mess them up. First had a dirty martini which I think I was missing the vodka (Kettle One) called drink. Tasted like pure olive juice. Another time at dinner I asked for a chocolate martini. I have no clue what they gave me but they left it and brought me another looking entirely different. Also the Bloody Mary's were not good. At dinner I asked for a frozen Oreo Cookie drink for my granddaughter and ended up being given a chocolate chip cookie instead. My drinks were ordered prior to ordering my meal and not delivered until I was almost finished with my meals. Last day they failed to give me my key card back & had to look for it after the restaurant closed.

In Belize you need to get a number to get onto the tender. My number was 19 & they were calling number 4 at that time. Get your number early & this was several hours after anchor dropped. All photos are $22.95. At times when I wanted pictures taken of my granddaughter there were no photographers.
