My husband and I went on this cruise for our honeymoon and we loved it so much we want to book another trip! We felt very pampered on this trip. The staff on this ship was amazing! The activity organizers were so much fun and there was so much to do on the ship that we were never bored. We played a lot of trivia each day and went to all the game shows. There was always someone there if you needed something on the ship and all the staff was very friendly. You did not even need to get off your but if you wanted a drink. There was always waiters walking around taking orders and bringing drinks. The ship was kept very clean. Our cabin was cleaned twice a day when we were at breakfast and dinner. There was always staff making sure that people washed their hands before entering the buffet. You never saw garbage around because they were always cleaning up and you often saw them scrubbing hand rails, menus, etc. Our room had lots of storage for all of our stuff. We had a balcony room that was very secluded from other balconies. The bed was so comfortable! We slept so good every single night. Our room was right next to the elevators which was great and the rooms were so quiet that you could not hear others in the rooms around you. The food was great. There was a large variety. Every meal in the dining room and specialty restaurants were three course meals. We thought they were very filling. We never went hungry on the ship because there was always something to eat. One of our favorite things was the breakfast food in the windjammer. The ports we went to seemed really safe and getting on and off the ship was simple and quick. We did one shore excursion through the ship and it was great! We would highly recommend the drink package if you are planning to drink. Beers on the ship cost $7 and almost all other drinks cost $12. The deluxe drink package includes as much bottled water you want and as much soda as you want. They have the CocaCola soda machines on the ship that have a variety of different options to choose from. They give you a souvenir cup to use on the machines. Without the drink package the only thing you can get for free on the ship is glasses of water, juice, tea, and coffee from the buffet. Almost all the drinks are $12 or less so they are covered under the drink package. This is for the specialty restaurants too. The only things not covered are Starbucks and some of the more expensive wines. Since we were on our honeymoon the crew gave us a card and left chocolate covered strawberries in our room. We both got $50 gift cards to the Spa as well. We loved that there was an adult only pool area as we were on our honeymoon and did not want to be bothered by children. We would definitely go on this cruise ship again. We chose to take our luggage off the ship on the last day ourselves and we were glad we did because that meant we could get off the ship first. The only thing that was hard for us was finding our airport transfer that we set up before the trip. There was not very good signage for this. There were people standing around that we could ask.
Our cabin was always clean. Housekeeping cleaned it twice a day. Our balcony was very private. There was a lot of storage space in the room between the closet and all the drawers and vanities. The bed was very comfortable. We slept great every night.
On this excursion we got a tour of the island. We stopped at the Turtle Center. At the turtle center we got to hold turtles and get in the water with some baby turtles. Then we stopped on our tour and tried rum cake and coconut rum. We stopped in the city named Hell and were able to mail a postcard from their post office to our families back home. Lastly we went on a semi submerged submarine. We saw ship wrecks and lots of fish. The submarine is not for those who get motion sick. Even with a motion sick patch on I was still sick. Overall very cool to see.View All undefined undefined Reviews
The tour guides through Native Choice were very knowledgeable and were native to Costa Maya. We got to see the ruins and climb on some of them. We went to a private resort on a beautiful lagoon where we got to have lunch and drinks that were included. We also kayaked and swam in the lagoon.View All 179 Mayan Ruins Reviews
We relaxed on the beach and walked through the park to see some mayan ruin replicas. We went snorkeling int he ocean and saw lots of fish and some statues under water. We went to the sea lion show and ate lunch while watching dolphins do tricks. We were disappointed that swimming with dolphins was not available the day we were there. It was a great park with lots to do.View All 256 Chankanaab National Park Tour Reviews
