Review summary

Cruise was overall fun!! Staff was great and boat was clean. Buffet food was good but the dining room food was fantastic. Did the hibachi for dinner one night and that was great and filling. Bartenders were quick and drinks were always good except in the casino. Lots to do. Promenade was ok nothing to write about, pizza was good. Pools were clean. Room was always clean. Bags came on time. Pool tables need stabilizers and claw game in the casino is crooked.

A little slow and stuffy. Drop off area was a mess. Then had to sit through two waiting areas.

No excursion, just took a cab to a local beach. Very exspensive but nice and clean.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Did the dune buggy and snorkel tour. Weather was a issue so we were delayed about 2hrs. Buggy broke down twice had to hitch a ride for a bit. Cruise did refund us a little money. Wouldn’t do it again but Cozumel was nice and so were the locals.
