  1. Yes you can. Go to the dining room the first day and see if any are available.
  2. I agree with you about the prime rib in the buffet. I liked almost all the meat at the carving station. On other cruise lines I usually find the carving station meat dry.
  3. They had bingo. One time it was by the pool. They had the typical cruise entertainment such as dance parties, couple games, trivia, belly flop contest dance lessons ect... I found the food in the dining room to be ok. I liked something's better than others. One night I splurged and paid for the rib eye which was good. Pizza was good on the buffet as well as the carving station. I wont say it was the best food I ever had but it was good and plentiful.
  4. 1 I dont think the app worked on this ship. There are screens all over advertising the evening show. 2 The excursions were definitely a good deal if booked online beforehand. The price was 20 per cent hire on board. MSC did a nice job with the excursions and you met in the theater instead of outside in the heat. 3 I ordered soda and water many times with a cocktail. Some of the bottles of water are huge. It also includes the espresso and mineral water .The beer was miller light bottles and Heineken draft. We drank a fair amount on the cruise and do not know of a limit. I had at lea
  5. There is an area called the Thermal spa. There is a fee associated with it. I paid 275 for 2 for 14 days and 2 thirty minute massages. I booked it before I went on the cruise. If you booked on the cruise it was 100 per person per week.
  6. The entertainment was typical cruise type stuff with plenty of singers and dancers. I particularly liked the cruise staff hosted performances and game type shows. Because of the size of the ship I met and got to know many other passengers and the crew. The food in the buffet was adequate and I really enjoyed their carving station. The dining room food was more enjoyable for me. I loved the gelato .The casino was fun.
  7. The showers were tiny with a shower curtain that I did have a fight with. I did shower most days in the shower in the spa area. The only down side was there was only one shower each in the mens and ladies room. You had to know those bathroom existed...They were near the cold room. Take a tour on the first day and look for them. The name of the beach in Costa Maya was Mahahual Beach.
  8. The ship definitely needs repair. It was very clean I figured out that if you left your bathroom door closed the ac was better in the room. I felt the Crew kept us informed of any issues. I found a chair by the pool daily. The buffet did not have enough seating indoors but I prefer to sit outdoors on a nice day anyways. I really enjoyed the crew hosted shows. Getting on and off the boat was a breeze.
  9. They said they will be in dry dock for 3 weeks. The staff didnt know what they were doing. I
  10. The bags came quickly. It was before we departed. Our rooms were ready before 2
  11. Ochoa Rios we did river tubing (loved it). Grand Caymen we did the sting Ray's (loved it) in Costa maya we took a taxi to the beach . I think it was 5 dollars. It was a very nice day and the beach was empty. We had food and drinks and a great massage for 20 dollars. We loved the cruise..The staff reallty made the difference .There are no zip lines or water slides. It depends on what your looking for. The boat was very easy to navigate.i have been on about 18 cruises and I am 60. We have been on some of the larger boats but now prefer the smaller ships. There were definitely some negatives but
  12. I did not go to the movies but they had a variety available . I enjoyed the cruise staff shows and some of the acrobatics. The excursions I did threw the cruise line were great. They 20 per cent off for booking prior was a good value. I especially liked that you met the excursion on the cruise ship and not out in the hot sun . It was very well organized. Which islands are you visiting?
  13. The buffet and/or Pizza is open for 20 hours per day. I did eat pizza a couple of late evenings.
  14. John we did not do the aurea experience. We did go up to the area on 13. It is full sun. The food was decent with some items better than others.
