I did hear a couple talk about seeing a jellyfish in Costa Maya when they went snorkeling there. Since I didn't go snorkeling there, I can't vouch for that.

On the Victory, I asked for food within a 30 minute window--maybe a 30 minute window is too small a time frame? The first time, the food arrived about 15 minutes early, before my wake-up call came...
