Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

There was a lot of advertising and lots of promises about the fabulous standard and service on Riviera, so we had high expectations. Unfortunately they were not fully met.

Here a short sum up: our suite was very nice, the ship in general elegant and modern, the staff was friendly but without some personal touch, the food was just average, entertainment was quite okay, the ports of call could have been better and even so the excursions.

Our spacious Penthouse Suite nr 9145 was very nice and we can recommend it. It has a very quiet location at the end of the aisle. We liked the big walk in closet, the comfortable bed and the nice balcony with the adjustable sunchairs.

Penthouse Suite nr 9145 was very nice and spacious and and we can recommend it. It has a very quiet location at the end of the aisle. We liked the big walk in closet, the comfortable bed and the nice balcony with the adjustable sunchairs.

Port Reviews

Key West

Very nice and laid back place, we liked it very much. We took the shuttle from the ship to the city centre.

Cozumel

Not much to see. But the sidewalk along the sea was quite nice. Awfull with all the Mexican guys who want to sell something and try to drag you into the stores. Very annoying.

Santo Tomas de Castilla

The port was a joke, it was a port for containers. We did an excusion by buss to Castle of San Filipe. Nice to see the countryside and Rio Dulce but the castlel was not worth visiting, too small.

Harvest Caye

Don´t understand why to go there - it´s an unhabited private island. They bulilt up an artiifical village which is visited daytime by tourists only. Like Disneyland. The wildlife and mangrove excursion was not good at all. We were looking for manatiees for one hour, but then you will just be able to see the nose of them..... We never went into the mangrove, we stayed outside.

Costa Maya

This was mucher better than expected. A nice port and a nice beach and village close to the port.
