We went on this cruise for our 38th anniversary. The waiters , cabin steward and everyone who worked on the cruise were so nice to us. They wanted to help us every way they could. We had a great time. We always do when we cruise.

The food in the dining room was really the only thing I was not happy with. They had replaced New York Strip steaks with flat iron steaks. They went with a cheaper grade of steak. I couldn't hardly cut the steak so I didn't eat much of it. I also ordered the Veal Parm. I have never seen a Veal cutlet so hard to cut with a knive. It seems they had really made the menu cheaper. The cuts of meat had really gone down hill. There was fried chicken and meatloaf that was just like the Buffets at any Ryans or Barnhills. Very disappointed.

The room was great. It was very clean and our cabin steward was very nice.

The activities were really good. We love to play bingo and watch the shows. The Simple Friends group were great.!! Enjoyed them so much we looked everyday to see where they were playing. The legends Show was so good. Karioke was a lot of fun.

We didn't go on a excursion. We just walked around Cozemel. We ate at Pachos Back Yard and enjoyed it very much. We went to a supermarket. This may seem funny, but we owe a grocery store so this was very interesting to us. Saw the way their cut meat and the different foods they sold.The people were very nice and the store was very clean.

Overall we really enjoyed our trip and will cruise again one day. The dining room food was the only thing we were disappointed in.
