We had a nice trip, a vacation is what you make it.

Ports of call were nice, beautiful beaches. Bring lots of money to Georgetown.

Ship nice, crowd a little rowdier than other ships we have been on. Older passengers may enjoy a different line.

Great excursion opportunities! Tulum tour is amazing. Angel is the best guide for that trip, if you can get him.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Only ate in dining room once, food very good. Grill on Lido deck had good selection most of the time. Sometimes a little behind on bringing out additional food, some waiting around time.


5 out of 5
great shows, dancing classes, horse raceing, etc. Cruise director was fun, great personality. I think her name was Rissa.

Service and Staff

Tulum was great, but leaves little time for anything else. Longer port visits would be nice, only in Tulum from 9:45 until 6:00.
Don't Miss: Tulum
3 out of 5
Expensive for eating and shopping. Good duty free prices on liquor. Only in port from 7:45 until 1;00, make whatever you do quick.
Don't Miss: turtle farm, beautiful gentle creatures

Pros: ports of call, friendliness of most of the crew

Cons: crowd a little wild sometimes, older passengers might like a different ship
