A fabulous vacation!

The ship was very clean and the decor was nice. The staff were all very friendly, as well as all the passengers we met. We had a great time exploring some very interesting ports of call that were not your typical tourist destinations. We had an amazing time all around and would definitely recommend this cruise vacation.

Pros: The ports of call were beautiful. Also the activities on the ship were a lot of fun.

Although the activities at the ship terminal were nice, I would suggest venturing away from the pier (beach, shops, and pool there) and head to downtown ($5/pp round trip)... its a neat little beach with plenty of restaurants and can sit at tables in the middle of the ocean and have lunch. There are lot of coral reefs and water sports you can do there too.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
We didn't do much at this port...just relaxed on a beach right near port. However I talked with many people who said West Bay Beach was unbelievable.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Stingray City was FANTASTIC! We could have done without the rest of the tour (Rum "factory", Hell, and Turtle Farm) but they were fun to visit once. It would have been better to spend more time with Stingray or on beach instead of land tour for us.
Don't Miss: Stingray City
Belize City, Belize
Zipline and cave tubing were fantastic....absolutely incredible!
