Review summary

Overall a good cruise, not too many children due to time of year but a lot of young adults. "Serenity" area was not my idea of serenity at all.

Machines were hard for me to figure out (old timer I guess) and I do not like the smoky environment

Hot Tubs

1 out of 5

Too many people at all times, I could never access

Entertainment

3 out of 5
stage show average, comedy club great for a couple of sets but the second set of comedians not good or funny

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
could not ask for better service in all areas, our room steward was way above average

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
All areas were clean but ship is somewhat dated, our balcony had a lot of rust, bathtub was very high and hard to enter

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Above what we expected, plenty of room, closet space and drawers for the 2 of us. All lamps had USB ports, comfortable bed

Ship tip

Eat in the dining room always! great food and service and no lines!

Ports of call

George Town, Grand Cayman

3 out of 5
Did not like the port, did not like having to tender to port. The excursion I did was Cayman Highlights, Hell & Beach Club, the highlights tour was good but would NOT recommend the beach club associated with this tour

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
Port was exceptional! Tour we did was Turquoise Bay private all inclusive Beach and I highly recommend this tour! About an hour to get there but got to see the country while riding and the beach club was exceptional! Great service, servers brought drinks into the water where you were! We had a fabulous time here.

Belize City, Belize

5 out of 5
Again with the tenders but the tour we did was Discover Altun Ha with lunch, long bus ride but well worth seeing the Maya Sites and guides were great. Lunch was off the beaten path and great!

Cozumel, Mexico

1 out of 5
Port was great but this was our second time in Cozumel and we won't get off the ship again here. We did the tour that was Beach Club with Lunch and Drinks, there is no "beach", only a very rocky shore line, could not get into the water except across a small bridge over the rocks and the area roped off for swimming was very small. Lunch and drinks only available for a 2 hour period and then you had to purchase. Would NOT recommend this tour

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Since we had a suite we had priority, we walked off the ship at 8:25 and were in our car by 8:40, amazing!
