Review summary

The food was really great if you know how to pick the right menu selections. I learned not to cruise the western Caribbean during this time of year as we had a lot of intermittent rain and no outdoor activities on the last sea day. However there were plenty of indoor options. We did make it to the beach on 3 days and had a lot of fun cave tubing in Belize. Our Cozumel excursion was cancelled due to weather conditions but we were offered an alternative that worked out fine.

The only disappointment was the entertainment in the main theatre. We enjoyed the juggler and hypnotist but everything else was boring or non existent. Cruise director was a bundle of energy and everywhere. Room service morning coffee was tasteless. Loved all the dining options.

Ship tip

If you want good morning coffee, don't get it through room service. Throw on some clothes and run up to the Lido deck.
