As a first cruise, this was great. In Cozumel, we opted to buy the shore excursion to the Mayan Rions of Tulum in order to be safe with time constraints. Our tour guide, Angel, was so informative, passionate, and had a personal connection that came out in what he shared and how he told the story of Tulum. I would HIGHLY recommend going on this for a historic and scenically beautiful event. In Belize, the shopping was great. shopping- best place to get some quality tequilas. In Honduras, we did the extreme zip line- another first. The 4 guides we had were fun and energetic, traveling with us through each line and laughing. There were photographers along the entire way to take pictures of our adventure, and for a great price of $25, they put every picture wanted from our group on a CD. We still had plenty of time to do so e shopping and beaching on the beautiful Isla Roatan afterwards. I highly recommend buying a few Honduran cigars as gifts- just as good as Cubans and can be taken back into the states.

the cruise line itself was extremely friendly- staff that interacted with us addressed us by name most of the time- they really take the extra effort to make the trip memorable and the best vacation we have ever been on. Adult, family friendly, and kids only entertainment all available. I would highly recommend this cruise line to anyone; we will definitely use them again for another fun site-seeing adventure!
