Review summary

Overall this was a really great 1st family cruise. Each of our excursions were well planned and easy to get to. The cruise director Emma was a hoot! She was dressed for every occasion. The meals were delicious and we had an amazing wait staff.

They were a lot of fun! We enjoyed the CLUE mystery and the evening shows.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Our 6yr old twins enjoyed the kids club but our older girls (9 & 11) thought there wasn't enough to do. The crafts were aimed at the younger crowd so they left and went to the pool.

Service and Staff

Our room steward was awesome and the wait staff in dining room was AMAZING! The boys loved Nolan and his team.

We did the Lamanai Ruins and our guides Edgar & Elmer were fantastic with our kids. They really enjoyed learning about the ruins.

Cozumel, Mexico

We did the dolphin excursion and beach day here. It was amazing - the dolphins were in an open enclosure and the snorkeling at the beach was fun.

We didn't do the luggage tags and just did our own "carry out." I think overall that was a bad decision - it was too much luggage to carry out.
