Review summary

We had a great relaxing time(much needed after the last year). Enjoyed the private island both times. The ship is very beautiful and had a great time exploring all it had to offer. This was our 50th cruise and would rate the ship in the top 10. We would sail on her again.

Very easy, had all the paperwork ready and out that was required. On the ship in less than 20 minutes.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The food was good in the MDR but selection could be better. The buffet seemed to never change in the 7 days. We ate at Butcher Cut on the last night. The food was good but for the price I don't know if we would do it again.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
All 3 pools where great, clean and never had a problem getting a chair. Would wonder if ship was full how hard would it be.

Shows were good, on the same level as Carnival.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Service was great, everyone tried to make sure all of our needs were taking care of. The wait staff were attentive to all our needs. The room steward was one of the best we ever had. All the ship's staff were very helpful to make sure we had a great cruise.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Loved the ship. Very clean, always would staff cleaning at all times of the day and night. The only issue was we had an Aft cabin and the nearest elevator was midship. Made for a long walk to the pool, MDR & buffet, and to the showroom. Next time we will book midship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was great, great view and very quiet.

Ship tip

The island was great, very clean and lot's to do. It's not CoCo-Cay but we wanted to relax and just enjoy the island.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

4 out of 5
Been there done that kind of port. Once you've been there a couple of times.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
If you can't find fun or excitement in Cozumel maybe it's you, just saying. Even if you been there many times(more than 10) there is still something different to do.


5 out of 5
There was a delay while we waiting for port authorities to clear the ship, but once that was done we were off the ship and the airport in 30 minutes.
