I have never been on a cruise before and my sister was getting married off the cruise ship and then having everybody on the cruise ship afterwards for a reception and asked if we could cop so I jumped at the opportunity to get to go on a cruise for the very first time. But once on the ship each day became more of a disappointment. From my first seconds on the ship as never being a cruiser before I had no idea what to do people were going for some emergency check I was very lost and confused and very few staff members were helpful or knew English so became very frustrating for me and my family. The food was just okay the shows were okay I guess. I was expecting so much more. My kids did have a blast on the slides. Majority of staff was very unhelpful and was given wrong information multiple times which lead to errors in my planning for activities in the evening. All of the ports were pretty much just walking off of the ship maybe shopping the only Port that was really more like the country itself was Cozumel I loved getting off at Cozumel the other ports were Honduras and Costa Maya both of them seem very short and expensive. I paid for the drink package to be included in my cruise and as a single mom with three kids my kids were constantly entertained had a blast tons of fun and I found myself barely drinking are really doing very much with little to no we're leaving to do for somebody single. In the few restaurants that were included in the cruise and didn't cost extra money pretty much serve the same thing in each of the restaurants which wasn't very good.

Was disappointed

Cabin Review

Family Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin M4 9082
The cabin was amazing it was beautiful! The View was phenomenal and I love sitting on the balcony and watching the sunrise. My room was either not made up or made up really late in the day so it seem to always be hard to figure out when I should be in or out of my room. And I never got any towel pets :-( and both my other party that was staying in other rooms all got towel pets but me and it was my first time cruising :-(
