Good value

Sail Date: November 30, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was a great vacation, hard to beat for the price, we paid $360 per person for an interior cabin. The ship was clean and well maintained, it didn't feel too crowded, as there was always somewhere to go on board. The ports varied for us, Mahogany Bay was so-so, but we were in the rainy season, so that may be a factor. Belize was a hassle, as you had to use a taxi boat to get there, and the process took a long time. Cozumel was beautiful, great shopping and lots of fun places nearby. The food was plentiful, and the service was good. I wouldn't say that every night was a gourmet culinary experience, and after seven days I got tired of the food. Overall, it was a great value and we would do it again.
