The cruise started out a little rough as embarkation was delayed five hours due to high winds. I would recommend traveling out of Galveston rather than Houston because we were also delayed 90 minutes on our return. These delays significantly changed the itinerary which caused us to worry about our excursions that were booked through a third party and not with the cruise line. The excursion in Belize was amazing and I highly recommend Ecological Tours. We went cave tubing, but they also provide zip lining among other activities. The ship itself is beautiful and well maintained, but we were one of the youngest couples on board. The onboard activities were oriented toward an older population. For example, the trivia games included questions younger generations would not know, the music and movies were much older, and forget 'Name that Tune.' Other than these few negatives, the cruise was wonderful and I enjoyed the food, art gallery, and stateroom.

Definitely choose a balcony.

Several delays really hampered the process and set us behind.

Anytime dining works great, don't waste $ on drink package, bring bottled waters.
