Wait time was fine; the embarkation location was not in the greatest shape.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Coffee was terrible! Specialty restaurants were excellent; regular restaurants were okay. I don't know why but I expected a higher level of food, just in general.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Pool was great, but finding a chair was really tough. Lots of saved, unused chairs. It was also tough to get chair service from wait staff.


I didn't go to any of the entertainment events

Children's Programs

I traveled solo

Very cool! I didn't do an excursion, but it was really nice to just visit and lay by the pool. The nature area was fun, too.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

I went to Chacchoben - that was wonderful!

Confusing. I paid extra for what was supposed to be "expedited" embarkation and debarkation - did not happen.
