We are on the same cruise the following week. We haven't been on this ship before but we are very excited about the trip. From what I understand this is a smaller ship which is perfect for first time cruisers and may even be more fun. We are planning on Xcaret and Paradise Beach in Cozumel. These are what we have decided from reading these boards. The best suggestion I have seen and agree with is relax, don't sweat the small stuff and have a great time! Would love to hear about your trip when you return.
