Children's Programs
Our 12 year old did not fit into any of the age groups-too old for camp carnival and too young for the teen activities. She enjoyed the water slide and ice cream machines! The arcade left a lot to be desired compared to the rest of the ship, but they did enjoy it.
Ship Quality
no clocks in staterooms and very, very few on the boat
communicating on ship was difficult
Food and Dining
professional staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Roomier than expected. Comfortable beds, bedding, pillows, etc.
Staff kept clean and stocked at all times-great service
Service and Staff

24 hours of entertainment and great food
Cozumel, Mexico
We did the Mayan Jungle Bicycle excursion. Zip line, snorkel, tubing, and biking. We LOVED it. However, the bikes were in awful disrepair and the water they provided was NOT bottled. There were no other options for drinks AT ALL and it was a 7 hour tour. Great tour guide and they took pictures and offered a CD of them at the end. No time for shopping if you want to leave time for that though. Great fun tour.
Don't Miss: Mayan Jungle biking & zip line
Nassau, Bahamas
People not as friendly or helpful. The Atlantis tour was a waste of money. The tour started at 8 a.m. but the slides don't open until 11:00 and the last ferry is at 3:00. Combine that with long lines and we got 2 rides each for $150 p/p. The "tour" was non-existent, no direction what so ever. The entire group actually got lost getting to Atlantis from the ferry because the guide left ahead of us! Also, the reason we chose this tour was to go on the slide that goes through the shark tank and it was closed! It had been closed for over a week! Atlantis was beautiful but bathrooms were filthy.
Don't Miss: Straw Market for shopping
Belize City, Belize
The Belizian people were very customer service oriented and very helpful, friendly people Disappointed in the lack of color in the reef on our snorkelling tour, loved the kayaking!
