Big fun ship! Lobby was not as open and looks dark. Boat interior and fixtures seems old and need to be updated.

Food was abundance but seem to be limited compared to the Ecstasy taste and quality.

Need more group activities for a 7 day cruise. My aging parents who look foward to the evening shows after dinner were disppointed that they were not able to stay up for the last show since there was only one show and it was at 10:30pm.

Children's Programs

Ship Quality

Big ship size that's clean. Interior seems dark but clean facility. Ship layout seems choppy.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Interior stateroom was good size with a roomy bathroom. Our stateroom steward was great, very hospitable and alert to our needs. TV was not mounted on the wall which took up some needed room.

Cozumel port was clean and full of shops. Right outside the port theres really nothing to see and do. There are no public beaches close to the port, we walked to a hotel outside the port and used their beach for a little snorkeling before returning to the boat. We paid to go to a nice beach but then you are stuck at the beach with nothing around. The real Cozumel is located outside the port, 5 min taxi ride into the city/market center. Its a long strip along the coast line full of shops and restaurants. Its clean and very tourist friendly to walk the entire strip.
Don't Miss: City and Market center of Cozumel

Belize City does not yet have the infrastructure to support the massive numbers of tourists. Theres really nothing outside the port area. No city attractions and market center within the city. It was very difficult and unsafe to walk outside the port entrance. Beaches are located on surrounding islands and are not free. Due to the many rivers that flow into the sea, the water is muddy and not at all Caribbean like turquoises water. We had little kids and aging parents so were not able to go scuba diving or hiking. Tour the city and visited the monkeys, not worth it!

Mahogany Bay is covered with greenery and hills that made it picturesque. The Free public beach inside the port was excellent for cooling off and relaxing on the free lounge chairs that were provided. The $10per adult for a short gondola ride from the port over the beach was not worth it, the walk was better! The Duty Free shop had the best bargain on liqueur and cigarettes. Right outside the port entrance was the zip line. The area outside the port is not within any walking distance to anything, you will need a taxi to venture outside the port/tourist activities. Overall this bay is a great place to enjoy the clean and free beach!
Don't Miss: "Free" beautify public beach right off the boat.

Pros: Cruise staff: stateroom stewards, wait staff

Cons: Not able to walk the entire length of the boat

Recommends Carnival Triumph? Yes!
