Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was well maintained and clean. Even elevators were not overcrowded. The only problem was the smoke in the casino's open area with smell spreading to other floors.

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was big, clean and had everything I needed

Ship tip

If you're don't like a smell of smoke don't take your cabin at low floors aft.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
