This was a "girls" cruise for "over 60's" gals.  Our mini-suite with balcony was especially nice with the extra space for 3 people, larger balcony, and tub/shower combo in the bathroom.  The entertainment was great.  The production show "Piano Man" was one of the best I've ever seen.  The commedian, Al Katz, was really funny, and the singer/ventriliquest, Mike Minor, was awesome.


We took a shore excursion in Grand Cayman to Hell (the devil is a hoot), the turtle farm, rum cake factory (which was really just a store), and Stingray City.  Fantastic day! In Cozumel we took the excursion to Tulum.  The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the site.  You can no longer climb the temple as I had done in years past.  The cruise line lists this tour as "moderately strenuous".  Maybe it is for the younger crowd, but we were whipped when it was over.


I had been on this ship before.  It is lovely, not too big, but lots of activities.  The food was great.  We had "anytime dining" so we could take in an early show or a late one, and work our activities around  our own dining preferences.

No towel animals! What's up with that?

Ship Tip

The Horizon court serves breakfast until 11:30 a.m. Perfect for late risers on sea days (like me). Adults will enjoy the Terrace Pool and covered lounge area. We made that our personal haven in our downtime.

Lots of shopping. Get your discount/free coupons on the ship.

I've loved it for 40 years. First-timers should see it on an island drive.
