We live in the Tampa Bay area so this was a natural choice for us. Easy embarkation. Ship is worn but lovingly cared for. Friendly staff. Cabin was a pleasant surprise - very roomy. Main dining room disappointing for dinner. We ate most meals in the strangely named Paris Restaurant, which has neither French décor nor food. However, a very nice shaded outdoor seating area is found at the rear of the Paris Restaurant. Pool music and major shows way too loud. Trivia games held in the middle of the promenade - why not move them to the closed off lounges? Great selection at the poolside grill for lunch and the pool slide is a hit. Don't miss the comedy club or Groovalicious in the Leonardo lounge. We highly recommend the Swim, Sail, and Snorkel excursion in Cozumel. Overall this cruise was a great value for the money, go and have fun.
