Great ship that never really felt crowded and has plenty to do. We brought our two teenage boys. Staff was very friendly and the food was slightly above average. Not as good as an Celebrity Cruise but equal to Norwegian. Cabin - we had a 14th floor balcony. I felt the balcony was nice but not worth much since we rarely used it. Clean and well laid out. Entertainment - the entertainment was a large step up from prior cruises and we greatly enjoyed all shows. We felt it was a little better than Disney (of course we had no little kids) and way better than Norwegian. The Key - this is a waste of money. Two meals are nothing special. Special hours at activities are very limited and at odd times making them inconvenient. Never used the early off boarding since we were on excursions. VIP seating was very limited and we ended sitting in regular seats anyhow. I suggest just buying the internet separately and saving the money for some drinks.

Great cruise but The Key is not worth it

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony
Cabin 2D 14204
Clean and efficient. We are low demand so bare that in mind. We were fine sharing the room with two teen boys. The mattresses are a bit stiff but we were still comfortable.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Bicycling
    We did the bicycle/cenote/paddleboarding excursion and had a great time. Small group from a mega ship made it even better. Excellent taco lunch included.

    Xcarat Park - The is really about the overall experience than Xcarat. We have been to Xcarat several times and think it is great. The problem is the two hours of getting there due to the ferry, long walk and then bus trip from Cozumel. Just do an excursion on Cozumel and save yourself all the painful/boring travel and just relax in Cozumel. You are herded around onto the ferry/bus both ways and it gets annoying real quick.

  • Aqua Park
    Great fun and well put together. No snorkeling on our day due to rough seas and the balloon was not available but the slides were great. Teens had a great time.
