Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The dining room food was wonderful. Some nights were more rushed than others. I did not enjoy the "fancy" dress code that was required for two nights - we were there to relax.... :) I understand the no flip flops and swimwear. However - suits and cocktail dresses were a bit over the top for me.

We did an excursion that was pleasant and had awesome snorkelling. There is a beach that is close to the port that seemed like a lot of fun and would be cheaper as you can walk to it. Check that out... we would do that next time.

Belize City, Belize

We chose not to do an excursion here, but the shopping was limited and would suggest that you plan an excursion here.

Cozumel, Mexico

Awesome port - our time was most limited here. Lots of shopping. We did the awesome snorkel and beach excursion here and enjoyed it a lot.
