Cozumel Trip 2013

Sail Date: April 04, 2013

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our second trip aboard a Royal Caribbean ship and I look forward to many more. The crew are always pleasant and helpful and the ship spotless. Our stateroom, while not as large as we had hoped, was homey and clean. Dining was a pleasure in the dining room, but the food in the Windjammer Cafe wasn't as good. The desserts were dry and tasteless. There were alot of things for families to do onboard and alot of things for singles, but there seemed to be a lack of things to do for the 50+ crowd to do. But, the shows are always entertaining.
We mainly booked this cruise to just get away for a few days, and this fit the bill. What brought us back to Royal Caribbean was the friendliness of the crew and the cleanliness of the last ship we were on. We will use them again.

Cozumel, Mexico
Be prepared to go through a gauntlet of people trying to "sell" you their stuff while exiting. It was almost overwhelming.


Don't forget to catch a show - they're fabulous!
