Second rate ship and service

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall the cruise was satisfactory because we cruise to see new places. The ship is therefore our hotel and restaurant, and this one was average. There wasn't anything horrible, but many little things that were annoying, such as the overcrowded captain's party, the ice cream and french fries always littering the deck, the screaming children allowed everywhere, including bars and the "adult" pool.

Pros: Ports of call were great

Cons: The entertainment

Food and Dining
We usually eat in the buffet to avoid the shenanigans in the dining room, and this time the food was pitiful.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
The entertainment was worse than amateur. It was painful at times. The activities were aimed mostly for children.
Ship Quality
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
It's a beautiful island to tour, and the Garifuna exhibition was interesting.
Belize City, Belize
George Town, Grand Cayman
Turtle farm is interesting to see.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
You have to ride about two hours to see the Mayan ruins, but it's worth it.
Don't Miss: Kohunlich Mayan site
