Cabin review: I1
Our cabin met our expectation in every way. It was plenty spacious and was clean. We did not anticipate spending much time here as when we were on Carnival it seemed we had to choose which show or activity we wanted to attend over another offered at the same time therefore were only in our cabin to sleep. And I would rather spend any extra funds on excursions etc rather than a bigger, nicer room that we are never in. Not with Costa though. The activities and shows were few and far between. We went because it was the only thing to do but there was only 1 per night and most were corny.
Port and Shore Excursions
Cozumel is just a beautiful place with beautiful beaches. Water visiblility is good and love to snorkel here. Seems the reef is not as good here but seems there are maybe more fish than in Grand Cayman. This was our second trip here and we really enjoyed it again.
I rated this port based on our excursion experience with Captain Marvins. Had a marvelous time with a small friendly tour group and great guides. Had a very nice boat where you could go up top and the view was spectacular. The water was so beautiful and clear. Looked like the front of a puzzle box. The actual port was outrageous as I think most things are. I know 2 blizzard and a cone at Dairy Queen was over $18. I still can't wait to go back to snorkel more and swim with the Sting Rays. We were all a little skiddish and fearful at first but loved it. The coral was absolutley amazingly beautiful here. Will be going back and would like to rent a private boat to just snorkel all day long!!! Happy times!!!!
Key West was beautiful but to us it was pricey and touristy and not very family oriented. We visited during a busy time of year and chose to stay onboard the ship and let the kids swim. Had it just been adults we would have visited Key West.
