Review summary

All and all a good cruise, sorry to have to point out the bad kids other than that it was a good time had by us and others we met along the way.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
This is a very good cruise, this is my forth time in two years on this ship, it usually is a good cruise no matter what. This time it was Florida spring break with all the unescorted self entitled kids running about the ship. Food was thrown about the rear stairway leading to the buffet. Food was waisted and spilled by these same unescorted kids in the buffet itself. I say shame on the drunk parents who let their children carry on in the way. Same thing happen last year and when I read a complaint about it, I then read a rebuttal from from a parent that stated they paid $4000 for the cruise so that their children should be allowed to do what they wanted. The ship's cleanliness is 90% out of a 100. The staff has to be the most friendliest at sea. Embarkation and disembarkation was very easy, stress free situation. The shows are very good we saw them all, and saw the comedians in the main theater and they were great. I felt a little let down by the new Belize stop though. Everything is an up charge there so bring cash. It is a beautiful Island but be prepared to pay.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We thought the service in the main restaurants was good and efficient. The meals were tasty and served at the right time and temperature. How can you beat a dinning and dancing venue, good music, great dancers even the staff had a five minute dance routine.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The thermal spa is definitely worth the upgrade. To spend a week with unlimited use can't be beat. I tried it on other lines and it was not as good or spacious.

Unless you are on a tour don't think you will be walking around without being harassed to death.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

$2 dollar cab to the beach and $20 dollar professional message how can you beat this, $10 dollar all day bicycle rentals, what more do you need, Plenty of seats on the sand if you buy from their restaurant, definitely a good day.

Cozumel, Mexico

Always a nice day to get out and explore on your own.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very simple with no stress added.
