Review summary

For our first cruise, could not have been more pleased. Large balcony not necessary for added cost.

This is our first cruise so I was not sure what to expect. We took the air package from NCL so we had a transport to the pier. Once we got to pier it was very crowded. Overall it took almost 2 hours to get on the ship

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We ate at three of the specials restaurants Cagneys, Lucina, and Moderno. Cagneys was our favorite but all were great. We also ate at the Manhattan Room, Savor, Sheenans, the buffet and Moderno again for breakfast and room service. We tried a little of everything and honestly never had a bad meal. I am absolutely shocked when people Complain about the food.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We always had things to do. The pool was small but I knew that beforehand. Loved the band in Syd Norman’s Pour House. We saw them perform twice. We also saw Burn the Floor and Rock of Ages. The entertainers were so talented.

Pulse Fitness Center

Took a bus ride to Playa Mia. AC on the bus was a must. Playa Mia was somewhat dated but enjoyed the relaxing time. Starbucks on the way out was an added treat.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
