Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2019
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Spa Balcony Stateroom

The hero squad was great from the guest services team down to the activities team. My husband and I loved how it was adult oriented, which does not mean that it did not exclude the children there were plenty of places for adults to hang out without having kids around, because we did not take our children on this one. Our room steward was more than helpful with everything. And with our spa balcony were had included access to the spa which was very relaxing and serene with that fabulous panoramic view. We did not make it to the specialty dining rooms, but we were able to dine in at the Taste and Savor as well as the Garden Cafe' which were well beyond our expectations. The selection of food was remarkable and much more than we anticipated. While using the internet package it actually worked better than what I have experienced on another cruise line. We did not have any shore excursions through the cruise line, we just took a taxi to Mr. Sancho's which was so great. Finally the shows, we were only able to make it to one of the show Burn the Floor, and it was very good. It was our last night and we were not ready to leave. The overall experience was good, it is highly recommended to anyone ready to relax. We will most definitely go again next time with the children.

Cabin Review

Spa Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B9 14716

The cabin was very spacious given that it was just myself and my husband. We loved that it same with a mini fridge fully stock, which we did not use anything out of. We didn't need to because we had the unlimited drink package, but if you need to there is a menu in the room for the prices for anything out of the mini fridge.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


We did not do an excursion. We did take a taxi to Mr. Sancho's Beach Club and it was awesome.

Costa Maya

We did not leave the port because we did not have that long there, but we did find a great taco place right before the port exit.
