Adventure of the Seas Cruise Review by Katyoparty
- Sail Date: January 2019
- Destination: Western Caribbean
The variety of activities and venues on the ship provided enjoyment for everyone in our group. The younger ones were the late-nighters who enjoyed the Schooner Bar and the casino. The early risers loved coffee from room service and the coffee bar. We all enjoyed the pool deck and the pool bars, dinners in the main dining room, and the excellent beach itinerary.
To sum up the highlight of this cruise for our family we all agreed that sitting as a group around Keith's piano in the Schooner Bar and singing our lungs out one night was hilarious and the smiles never left our faces the whole time. I'm smiling right now as I write this--it was that good. Keith is truly an entertainer. Highly recommend.
Our family has travelled quite a bit in Mexico over the past 20 years but Costa Maya was a new port to us and what a lovely surprise. Not so commercialized yet and we found it refreshing. First thing to do is get out of the immediate port area and take a taxi to the malecon where there are little beach clubs and more locals. We spent our time ashore walking on the boardwalk, sat under umbrellas with some ice cold buckets of beer and fresh pico de gallo (Big Mama's), and ate street tacos from a local cart vendor. Enjoyed by one and all.
We also took an independent excursion with Cozumel Beach Bar Hop which goes to the east end of the island which has no electricity for the most part. Off the beaten path and more authentic small beach bars with loads of fun and frivolity. These are rustic beach places with sand and surf not chain restaurants with fancy bathrooms. The millennials thought they were hip and the rest of us remember when Mexico used to have places like this everywhere.
Looking forward to the next one--bon voyage!
