Review summary

This is my 3rd NCL cruise in 4 years. My biggest complaint was the service in the dining rooms. It really was slow and the food was not hot nor great. There were a few times we left before our dessert came because it took too long. Also, in the Manhattan Room, you HAVE to wear pants. Unfortunately, one of the members of our group of 30 couldn't join us because he did not have a pair of pants. He did look nice in his docker shorts and polo shirt. Sitting next to us though was a gentleman in ripped jeans and ragged tshirt. Looked like he just got off the beach and through the old jeans on.

Buffet was excellent and always well stocked. The only thing about the buffet, was the ice machines were broke a lot. I ate in all the main dining rooms...service was not good and food was not great....not hot either

This was my favorite. I understand this is NCL's private island. I couldn't understand why the food and drink were extra though.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
