Well, it didn't look good in the beginning. We finally set sail around five hours late. Embarking was smooth and painless. Once under way we were informed we would steam to Roatan and then come back to Belize and Coz. This was a very good plan and it gave us max time at each stop.
It was obvious the crew was taking extraordinary care in protecting our health. This slowed down the food on the Lido but it was worth it. The young lady who cared for our room was impeccable. Our wait staff was also above reproach. The food in the dining room Palm was extremely well prepared and the selection each night was mind wrenching. So many goodies so little time. The Maitre d's singing was most enjoyable. All in all the cruise portion of the trip was deligtfull. We will not hesitate to cruise with you again.
Now a couple suggestions. Roatan sucks. I can't say any more. Belize and Coz was very nice. Even the tender ride was as painless as it could be.
Since we were on heighten alert for Narvo we all were interested in the instruction from the bridge. I am 75 and like most of the passengers our age it is difficult to hear. The Captains remarks and instuctions were unintelligible. Although his command of english may be very good his thick accent on a noisy ship didn't work. We had to get an interpretation from a crew member. Suggest when you have instructions of a medical nature you let the head of the medical team make them and let a junior officer make all others.
Otherwise we returned home safe and sound. Disembarked easily with minimum delays. As I said we will probable go along for the ride with you again.
