Review summary

You need to do something about the smoking areas on the ship. There is no way for those who don't care to breath in second hand smoke to avoid it. Smoking guests do not follow the "no smoking" policies as people were smoking off their balcony near our room.

The pools were overcrowded with kids. The pool slides were fun for a short time.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
It was impossible to avoid the smokers. The casino area was open to the entire 5 level so you could smell it everywhere. There were no signs letting you know you were about to enter a smoking area so you had no idea until you were breathing it in.

Debarkation at this port was terrible. The design of the shopping center was confusing and hard to navigate through.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras Did not visit port

Weather conditions did not allow us to visit this port.

Belize City, Belize

5 out of 5
Debarkation was good. The port and shops were excellent. The return process to the ship was chaotic due to the security screening process location. This forced people to remain on the water taxi until those in front went through the screening process. This needs to be made more efficient. The cave tubing excursion was an awesome experience!

Cozumel, Mexico

Debarkation, the pier and shops were all excellent.

Debarkation in Costa Maya was dangerous. All others were good.
