My husband and I went on this excursion while sailing on the Navigator of the Seas. Two words of advice - 1. Make sure you eat something before you leave the ship. Even if you just grab a pastry from the buffet. Do not arrive with an empty stomach, because the first thing you'll get is a frozen margarita when... More

We have visited Cozumel several times on cruises and have never participated in an excursion, so when we read the description in the Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas shore excursion booklet we decided to try a shore excursion in Cozumel. I was not sure what to expect after reading several reviews on the cruise website and trip advisor. Friday,... More

We had a great time! The one suggestion I have would be to have a little more quesadillas to eat with the salsa. Other than that, it was great -- the hosts were excellent. I thought it was well worth the money spent. Also, it would have been helpful to have an elevator for people with disabilities. (I know that... More

We travelled to Cozumel recently as part of our cruise onboard 'Allure of the Seas'. We chose this tour because it looked like a lot of fun. We met the guide at the International terminal just after getting off the ship. They then arranged for Taxis to take us to the hotel. Upon arrival at the hotel we were ushered... More

My husband did this as our cruise excursion in Cozumel and had a great time. Our favorite was making guacamole and the margarita on the rocks. We got plenty of chips but I wish they'd given us more quesadillas to eat with the salsa. I also wish it wasn't such a large group, probably 200+ people. We skipped the salsa... More

I really didn't know what to expect, it was my first trip to Cozumel, and the sights and sounds drew my attention in every direction. This was the BEST part of the day! The dancing chefs, meeting new people, learning how to make salsa and dance salsa were the perfect way to start the day. We will do this again.

Hi Fun-loving Chef! Thank you for your review with a male point-of-view. We receive many chefs who are hesitant at first, but the Dancing Chefs catch everybody in the act. Before you know it you're making drinks and salsas like a professional and sampling your own creations. Even the Salsa dance class becomes easy after a couple of margaritas. Hopefully... More

First you wait by the pier to leave, then you wait for a taxi, then you wait for a table, then you wait at said table… Drinks- weak. We actually asked for shots of tequila, (and got them). The best one was the one you make yourself, on the rocks. Salsa- relatively good. Location- it was inside for us, unlike... More
