Lil recap on the day. Great day touring Tulum. I wanted to show the bus for the tour, it was a legit bus. This is the 1st tour we've done from the ship n a long time.

A few more, we did the beach break tour. Left at 715 and was the last ferry back to the dock.

This is a shot for the folks who are wondering about 2D vs 2C. You can see the difference in the lifeboat height. Basically, the 2D's have a tender in front of them, the 2C's have just a regular lifeboat

Tropicante was fine, they raked what little they was. But today in playa del Carmen there was a lot. You can really see it in the pics

After looking at the pictures from Cozumel Ibooked the same excursion because it just looked more inviting than what the excursionbrochure portrayed. So I guess thanks could be in order.

Hi Whitshel, great live review enjoying all of it. We will be on board from 4th October, couple of asks, What is the entertainment like, especially the house band as we like to watch them late nights upstairs. Also have you had the blind disco yet in the martini bar, supposed to be very good, we did this once before on royal and it was a blast.

Thanks

It's a really good tour and the tour guide Jesus is really good. Talked the whole way down and u get the lil ear things when u get to Tulum so he can continue the tour. He did apologize about the seaweed, I guess it's a phenomenon right now in all the Caribbean islands.

Entertainment has been really good. Lots of live music around the ship. The silent disco we didn't go too but our friend did, she liked it a lot. I don't hear the loud piped in music everyone complains about. We have only gone to one show, comedian Wayne cotter, very funny and pg if u have a family.

We are sailing out on Sunday, bu did not select the unlimited internet package. Do they have a "by the minute price" or other, smaller, packages available for sale on board? I could not justify spending $200+ for a package. We are sailing out on Sunday, which may be an adventure cruise with the impending storms....kinda wonder where they'll take us???

Thanks so much for your interesting and informative posts.

Do not know but have heard that the wifi is very slow/ hit it miss when u want to use it, prob could find free in ports. We are on the 20 as well, I'm good with whatever they decide as far as itinerary, I've never sailed in very rough seas before
