Review summary

This was our very first cruise. Did not know what to expect. Went on this cruise to placate my wife. We were not on the ship 24 hours before I got hooked. We have been on 11 cruises since and have 2 more booked. Wished we had started cruising sooner.

Went quite smoothly. Had no idea what to expect but the terminal staff helped us through the process.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Being our first cruise we attended everything we could to get as much out of the cruise as we could. We went to all activities on the Lido from the funny hairy chest contest to the mixology.

The Colossus Atrium

Ship Quality

A Spirit class ship that was truly just right. Not over crowded. Workers were constantly cleaning stairwells, walls, floors 24/7.

Cabin / Stateroom

Quite comfortable and had everything to make our stay just that more awesome.

Went to Tabayana Beach, What a grand time we had sampling the food and local beverages. a most beautiful beach.

Belize City, Belize

4 out of 5
Did a tour of the city and really enjoyed it but the amount of trash on the sides of the roads were disturbing. You want people to come back, clean it up. The port should invest money in hiring some local workers to do this.

Cozumel, Mexico

Went on a submarine excursion here. Had a great time. The port had excellent shopping and entertainment spots.
