Review summary

Much of the staff was very good and nice. We were not impressed and actually upset at the topside staffing or lack of it and the ones that were there were slow and served people that would just walk up even though others were waiting way too long. Three times I had to wait over 20 mins to get a drink. Had multiple people served before me that had not waited but a few minutes. That is unacceptable. The staff needs to try and be quick like other cruise lines. There needs to be more of them and there should be a separate place for walk up orders for people to stand to get their drinks.

Ship Quality

Too small for our liking. To many bottleneck areas. Especially were entering and exiting the garden cafe.

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
Cozumel debarment was unacceptable. It was over two hours from when we were supposed to be able to hit port to when we actually were able to. We’ll never to a anchor at port thing again. This should be explained before someone books a cruise. Very disappointed in this experience. Other cruise lines pulled up to the pier.
