Review Summary

The ship was the largest we had sailed on so far. Though the ship sailed full there were only 2 times that we felt crowded. Many times we found peaceful, private moments. It was clean and the decor was what you would expect on a cruise ship. The rooms were a quite a bit larger than prior cruises and we enjoyed the extra space (we had an ocenview on Riviera deck

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Do not miss the Emerald Steakhouse, it was well worth the additional $30 per person. The dining room food was good quality. The pizza was awesome. We could not speak for breakfasts or desserts as we missed most of them.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The room steward was great, the rest of the staff was always efficient if not overly friendly.

Cabin / Stateroom

Loved the stateroom. The size made it possible to enjoy time in the room. We had a couch to relax on. Also enjoyed the mini bar instead of always having to leave room if you were looking for a beverage

Ports Of Call

George Town, Grand Cayman

Too sunburned by this point to fully enjoy the beach but we did enjoy the Tiki beach resort. Pleanty of shade and a bar.

Belize City, Belize

We took the cave tubing (booked through the ship). While it was a nice bus ride through the city and country side it is long. If you plan on taking this excursion, book the earliest time possible. AFter the Hour plus bus ride and the 45 minute plus hike through the jungle carrying an intertube, wearing a life vest and a helmet, we had to wait almost an hour to get in river. This made us regret having taken this excursion. In speaking to others that went earlier they loved it.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Stay away from shops they drop you of at. High pressure and high dollar. Also never take the first price. We bought a gold chain and crucifix and original price asked was over $1200. Ended up paying $430. We loved eating at the Casablanca restaurant just off of the main square. The fish tacos were great, the service excellent. If you tip the Mariachi band $20 and buy them beers they will play forever.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
Our favorite excursion ever. This little island has everything. Great lunch, reasonably priced $3 local beers, snorkeling, beach pool. We can't wait to return
Don't Miss: Maya Beach Resort private island
