Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Spa Balcony Stateroom

Chose this cruise to hopefully miss spring break but discovered it was Canada’s spring break. Very crowded and rowdy crowd. Tried to find quiet places and all the designated quiet areas were full of unruly screaming children. No rules were ever enforced.

Embarkation was a nightmare. Some people were in line for over 3 hours before getting on the ship. Not sure if Corona screening played a part. But I doubt it.

All of the specialty restaurants were superb. The buffet was good for lunches. Except again, children using their hands to get food. Unacceptable.

Cabin Review

Spa Balcony Stateroom

Colors were blah. Green and brown. Never got a towel animal. Nice thing was a king sized bed. Good location but very noisy anyway.

Port Reviews


Been many times before. Stayed on ship.


Embarkation port.

Harvest Caye

Love love love the pool there. When we arrived pool was closed. Still cleaning. It’s not like they didn’t know a ship full of people were arriving at 10 am. Start cleaning a bit earlier.

Drink prices very spendy here.

Costa Maya

Our favorite port. But unfortunately we had to skip this port due to high winds. SMH.


Cloudy day. Went to Paradise Beach which is always nice.

Not much new in Cozumel.
