We had a lovely time. It was our first cruise. The ship had everything you needed though I did get the impression it was an older boat. The shore excursions we loved were cooking in Cozumel and Catamaran Snorkelling in Roatan. Jaguar Truck in Costa Maya was ok but we had horrible weather. We did not have the best time cave tubing in Belieze as we thought we would. We also did not see the value in buying the drinks or dinner packages and we just paid for what we consumed and saved a LOT of money.

No complaints here - we got what we paid for and everything was comfortable.

Ship Tip

Don't go to Bamboo paid dinning, the food was horrible. Le Bistro was an amazing on board restaurant offering amazing savory options but we did not enjoy any of the three dressers sampled. Why pay $35 for a steak at Cagneys when you can get one at $15 at la Cuchina or free at Aqua or Venetian?

No need for excursion, the ship stops walking distance from the French Quarter

Would have been better except for weather. Also the Cenote is tiny, not quite what we expected.
