Food and Dining

The Manhattan Room, Taste & Savor were more quiet than the buffet, but all the food was amazing! We had 3 specialty dinners. Cagney's Steakhouse was our favorite.

Cagney's Steakhouse

It was our favorite. Good food & good service. They evidently lost our order, so the manager came over to apologize. He sent 2 lobster tails to our table & sent chocolate covered strawberries to our cabins the next day.

The ropes course with a zipline was so much fun!!

Ropes Course

Most days it was closed because of high winds. We did it twice the last day. It was so much fun. We're 69 & 70. Be sure to go with closed toed shoes & nothing in your pockets.

Entertainment

Didn't care for After Midnight. Just not our style of music, but the tap dancing was amazing. Choir of Man was pretty good.

Escape Theater

I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Very happy with all we participated in there.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our steward, Sarah, was amazing. After the first night, the bed hurt my back so I requested a foam pad be put on the bed. She brought us ice every night. All of the waiters were very attentive & did a great job.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was clean & well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We were very comfortable in this cabin. There were just 2 of us. The bed needed an additional foam mattress on top. Sarah put that on our bed & it was just fine.

Ship tip

Order a foam mattress topper before you get on board.

Didn't do an excursion. Just caught a taxi who drove 4 of us around for $40. He was very proud of his country. He took us to a chocolate factory. It was really interesting. We really enjoyed this.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
My friend & I did the Mexican cooking class we booked from Norwegian. It was fun. Our husbands played golf with a package I booked from Shipmate. It was at the Cozumel Country Club. Don't do it. The course was not in good shape & the clubs they rented from the CC were junk!! They were very unhappy!

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
It was slow because they only had 1 facial recognition machine.
