Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Extended balcony was very nice. But the location was right by service door which was constantly banged in the morning. Hard to get a sound sleep.

Ship tip

There’s no Poolside movie screen. So no late night movies.

Ports of call

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

5 out of 5
Been here before, but very enjoyable.

Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala

5 out of 5
Amazing tour with “Mani” who was so knowledgeable about area, country and good sense of humor.

Puntarenas, Costa Rica

4 out of 5
Very hot and humid.

Panama Canal Transit

5 out of 5
Exceptional with an on board authority on the canal and history. Perfect!

Cartagena, Colombia

5 out of 5
Nice to see the locals in their area. I know the people are poor, but it did seem that the wanted to exploit the tourist. Emeralds that are mined there are actually cheaper at home.

Santa Marta, Colombia

5 out of 5
Again poor natives, but seized the opportunity to exploit the tourist. Tourist beware!

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Always like Grand Cayman. Did a different tour via the beach. Enjoyable lunch and afternoon.

Tampa, Florida

5 out of 5
Loved Tampa! Will go back!
