This was my second cruise but husbands first.  We had a great time and loved every minute of it. The food was absolutely wonderful. We chose the anytime dining and never had a problem with having to wait in line. Every restaraunt was fabulous! We did choose the buffet for breakfast every morning!  Our bell boy Sergio was so sweet and very attentive of all our needs. I can't say enough about him! Everything was great on board, the only negative thing concerned the excursion. We scuba dived at all three stops. We had enough time after our dives to go do some shopping in Cozumel and Roatan but with Belize they tender you to shore or in our case to our dive location. They brought us back to our ship close  to 2:00 when we got cleaned up and went to get on a tender boat we were told we can't go ashore because the tender boats stop running at 3:00.    We never got to see any of belize.

I think this is probably one negative thing about cruising vs staying at a resort, it seems that you are rushed and on a tight schedule on docking days.    I will say the diving was just gorgeous in Roatan and Belize.  Since we have dove in Cozumel several times we didn't have  anywhere to compare it to .  Now we do, Wow!

Wasn't real pleased with dive shop that the ship used. Wasn't that organized and seemed like we were rushed. We have dove probably 25 times there and always had great experiences with some other dive operations
