Sail Date: Aug 2021
Cozumel, we went to the paradise beach area. This resort was next to Carlos and Charlies, which was closed because of the Hurricane and no power.

We decided to take a last-minute cruise out of Miami on the Gem. This was the first sailing after Covid. I have to say that the process of Embarkment was excellent! The ship although old was very clean and well maintained. It is a smaller ship, so getting from one end to the other was fairly easy. The staff was amazing, and the specialty dining was definitely worth it. I would go on this ship again. On our sailing, they were only half full which made the service wonderful. I also would say this is more of an adult cruise, not a family one.

The only issue that I had was at the buffet. They had 2 servers who would walk around in the morning with coffee saying coffee, coffee/wakey, wakey, coffee makes you sexy! I could do without that first thing in the morning. It was very annoying. Overall this was a great cruise!

Cabin Review

We had a club balcony room and it was spacious. The shower was very small and my husband who is 6'1" had trouble fitting into it.
