Children's Programs
Our younger kids thoroughly enjoyed Club HAL and they had enough staff so the kids did not get lost or left-out.
Service and Staff
The dining room and cabin attendants could not do enough for us...they seemed disappointed we did not ask them to do more!
Cabin / Stateroom
The staterooms were in excellent condition and maintained impeccably. The size of the cabin was excellent and we enjoyed the central location on the ship.
Food and Dining
The food quality and taste were amazing. The fresh breads and pastries were excellent.
Ship Quality
The ship had a layout similar to the ms Westerdam so it was easy to find our way around. The ship was kept spotless via regular, aggressive cleaning.
The evening programs were very good.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
The port itself is mainly a commercial enterprise. We went to the Mayan time we will probably just go to the beach.
