Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food experience was awesome. The wonderland experience was so fun and the waiter and mad hatter was just extraordinary. The chocolate ball was prob ny favorite dessert the whole cruise. The wait staff in the dining room was efficient and Fabiano the assistant waiter was great, very sociable, even when we seen him outside the dining room. The windjammer had a nice variety of food and was also very efficient.

Definately enjoyed the excursion we did at this port. We did the boss and snorkeled here. The crew of the boat we were on took good care of everyone and made sure they were safe and had a good time. The only kinda bad point to me was the photo package for the boss that the onboard photographer offered. While the pics were nice i think the price is a little hefty and there is a lot of pics of everyone else besides you. I wished it would have been a little more pics of me and my party than so much of everyone else.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
I liked costa maya, we did the atv and beach club at this port. The atv was very fun and the guides made sure that you were able to keep up and that we had a good time. It was even nice that you got open bar when you got to the beach club. The vendors were a bit high on their prices, tho as I knew i could get a lot of stuff cheaper from cozumel, so i didnt do a lot of shopping there

Cozumel, Mexico

I liked this port a lot. The excursion we Did, which was the snuba, was awesome. The instructor Antonio was really good. He kept everyone informed and made sure we felt comfortable doin the excursion with him. We saw a very good amount of fish while we were underwater and he guided us around to make sure we seen a lot. I enjoyed this port a lot and the shopping is always great here so i enjoyed this port a lot.

Nassau, Bahamas

We went to the beach at this port and shopped a little. I liked this port but the only downside is that the vendors are very aggressive here.
