Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

Had a pleasant week.  Not quite as "nice" (staff, food, special touches) as the Holland America trips we've taken but good "middle of the road" cruise line.  The shore excursions were good - especially the Cenote snorkeling in Cozumel.  The biggest negative:  We were 6.5 hours late getting into port at the end of the trip.  Apparently this is not an uncommon issue for the Houston port but it would have been nice to have had a head's up about it in order to make plans.  

Cabin / Stateroom
Just had better service and amenities on the Holland America trips. Was kind of disappointed. Lack of outlets was a problem.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
The end of the trip was a disappointment. 6.5 hours late getting to port. Since this seems to be a common issue with the Houston port, it would have been nice to have had a head's up. Definitely tainted the positives about the rest of the trip.

Houston, Texas
Plan to be delayed if you sail in or out of the Houston port.
Cozumel, Mexico
Definitely do the Cenote snorkeling and ask that Pepe be your guide!
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Gumbalimba was fun. Skip the beach afterward (i.e. purchase the less expensive excursion).
