My wife and I booked this cruise after selling our condo and wanted to splurge a little so we booked a crown loft suite. The room was spacious and well appointed, there were a few signs of age, but for the most part, it was stellar. The amenities and service that come with the room are quite nice. WE enjoyed personalized service from our loft attendant Ann Marie Ottey - She was the best! Getting preferred seating at all of the venues and the Suite Lounge where there are free drinks from 8 am to 11:30 Pm, was a highlight. (we are not drinkers but if you are, this is a great deal because alcohol is included)
The food was great and believe it or not, we preferred the main dining room for dinner over the Suites Only Coastal Kitchen. The food in the windjammer was very good as well - There are plenty of great free solutions on board if you do not want to spend any more money. We did eat at one Specialty restaurant - 150 Central Park. All I can say is WOW! The food, the presentation, atmosphere and service were absolutely top notch.
The ship is HUGE and amazingly fun with lots to do from surfing to mini golf to ice skating, zip lining and even amazing spaces like the Solarium to unwind under the sun with pools and hot tubs. IF you get bored here, you aren't looking hard enough for things to do.
Our Ports were decent. We didn't even get of in Nassau because we have been there so many times. Costa Maya was really good, we were able to go see the Mayan Ruins at Chachoben for $74 for my wife and I. (the Cruise line was charging $200) We simply walked passed the entrance to the port where there were taxis galore. They gave us a driver who drove us to the ruins, stayed and waited for us and brought us back - well worth it. In Cozumel we did the XPLOR all inclusive. Wow, so much fun to go to an adventure park with Zip Lines and underground rivers and ATV's. Although the ferry ride was the worst boat ride i have ever taken, we still had fun at the park. Please note, if you get sea sick, you might want to pack some dramamine or get the sea sick tablets the boat offers before getting on the ferry from Cozumel to Playa Del Carmen.
Overall, this cruise was so much fun and well worth the price tag.
