Embarkation was horrible. Stood in line for over an hour. Time slots don’t matter.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was great in the MDR. The Italian restaurant is not what it once was. Buffets you will have to hunt down where the food is . Buffet has very limited hours for breakfast and lunch. Guy’s Burger’s and Shaq’s was fantastic. Chabang was amazing. Definitely will go back. Pizza and sandwiches was always ready!!

Service and Staff

Couldn’t ask for better.

Ship Quality

The ship’s layout is ok to be so big. Everything was always super clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I absolutely loved this cabin. The shower is so much better than the other ships. However, they could have put the toilet paper in a different spot.

Ship tip

Definitely try Chabang and the pastries at Javablue

It rained on us this time. We did some shopping and found ourselves at the bar in port. Absolutely nothing to complain about.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
We took a cab to the Krazy Lobster and had amazing food and Margaritas on the beach. Shopping is plentiful on that strip of the beach.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Absolutely love Cozumel. If you want real Mexican food take a cab to Palmera’s. The food is always fresh and the drinks are strong. They have shops all around. No need to stay in port.

Disembarkation was super easy and fast.
