It was mine and my boyfriend’s first time on a cruise.. We had the best time! No complaints at all. All of the staff made the trip so memorable that we are already talking about our next cruise for next year:)

Review summary

As a first time cruiser I would definitely recommend it to everyone! I am hooked haha.. there wasn’t one experience that I didn’t love! The weather was amazing, the staff was helpful and knowledgeable, and the ship was outstanding!

Embarkation

5 out of 5
We walked right in haha.. I thought there would be a long wait, but there wasn’t. We got there early so maybe that was the reason:)

We went to Punchliners Club nightly.. the comedians they brought on were hilarious! I also especially loved the 80s throwback rock concert! I was singing along to all the music!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our Steward Conrad did an amazing job! He was so personable and said hello to us every time we were walking by.. our room was always in tip top shape when we returned.. and the towel animals were cute and an extra bonus!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was very clean.. there was always someone right there cleaning.. whether it be vacuuming or just cleaning off the tables at the buffet

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was awesome! Plenty of storage space! And the balcony views were wonderful:)

Ship tip

I would say that the staff was very warm and helpful.. even on the shore days. It got really hectic trying to move that many people from the boat to the tender or port.. they were very knowledgeable and helpful to everyone. Being asked the same question over and over they never seemed flustered.. or if they were they didn’t show it haha. My advice would just be to sit back and enjoy.. show up on time for excursion day so you can hear all of the announcements about where to go.. because the staff will let you know.. you just got to listen

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5
Miami was beautiful.. we did the Everglades excursion.. that was a lot of fun!

George Town, Grand Cayman

We did the Rum distillery and 7 mile beach excursion.. the beach was beautiful! The lady who worked in the distillery was very knowledgeable and even patient with all the drunk passengers haha..

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
We loved the port and our Excursion.. we did BOSS adventure.. that was definitely an experience! The port was clean and I loved all of the shops

Belize City, Belize

5 out of 5
We loved Belize.. didn’t spend much time at the port because our excursion was an all day excursion.. we did Xunantanich.. it was absolutely beautiful.. I even loved how they took us to a local restaurant so we could try an authentic Belizian meal

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
So technically we didn’t even step foot on Cozumel.. we did an all day excursion that brought us to Tulum.. so we took a tender over. The ruins were absolutely amazing! Couldn’t ask for better weather! And I loved how we had time to do some shopping and eat some of the local food and drink

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
So the disembark day was alittle chaotic.. there were a lot of pushy people trying to leave.. there was nothing the staff could really do.. but I am just glad that I got an excursion that day because we got priority on leaving the ship.. I think if I didn’t have an excursion and just got a taxi to the airport I would have been more flustered..
