Took the Christmas cruise from Mobile, AL. First time cruiser, but felt the ship has seen better days. It wasn't in the top notch shape, as paint was peeling at places in the Cabin, Rubber Insulation at windows was coming off and bathroom fittings were kind of loose. As far as the food is concerned, it was plentiful, however Pizza station was almost always crowded, Indian food options in Celebration dining room were a plus, Menu wasn't repetitive, however, Food itself could have been more flavorful. There were plenty of activities for everyone, right from the kids to adults. We were literally running from one venue to another for first 3 days trying to cram in and attend as many as we could. By the fourth day, it all started looking repetitive, in fact, one of the fun hosts cracked the same joke in 4 different places. Free child watch in the morning and evening was a HUGE plus. This made life so much easy for the parents like us. It also gave us time to visit Casino, have a peaceful dinner with our group and spend sometime together. All in all, I was impressed with the cruise. I will give it another try next year.

First 3 days were fun

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Chankanaab National Park Tour
    Great place when on a Shore Excursion to get a Taste of Cozumel in the short time. Has something for everyone, Mayan replicas, Waterfalls, walking trails, Zip Lines, Aerial Obstacle Course, Sea Lion and Dolphin Shows, Kayak, Snorkel, Scuba etc. Loved the Sea Lion show which is included in the entry fee. Rentals are expensive though (Clear Bottom Kayak for $25 per person!!)
