We found a wonderful cruise at an affordable price. The ship's crew was well trained, courteous and very hard working. The balcony cabin was wonderful. The food was pretty good, although I believe I had some sort of food-related illness for a couple of days. Desserts looked much better than they tasted. Other food was sometimes too salty. Main complaint was the express disembarkation which was far from express.  Going through customs was quick. The optional excursions we took were perfect, except for the ferry ride going to Playa del Carmen which was quite rough, causing my husband to get a little seasick. The waters were very rough the last day and many of the passengers were woozy.

Enjoy the food and service at the Venetian restaurant. The buffet is great for breakfast or if your in a hurry, but the Venetian was our favorite "free" restaurant. Ignore the many sales talks promoting jewelry sales and other "guaranteed" stores..
Seasick meds a must. Tv channels poor.
