Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
It was comfortable the only negative was a ruin smell in the bathroom that didn’t go away even after being clean from the beginning of the trip. On the upside, I slept like a baby on my bed.

Ship tip

If you have motion sickness buy the bracelets they really do work. Also make dinner reservations ahead of time so you don’t have to wait in line.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas Did not visit port

I am from Houston so have visited many times.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

The excursion was canceled and the stores there didn’t have much to offer. The food too pricey for the taste.

Belize City, Belize

5 out of 5
The Ruin excursion was great but very hot, the guide was excellent the only drawback was the food. I got sick from the chicken served.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Cozumel was beautiful, will visit again.

The wait in line for immigration was terrible. Not enough agents for the amount of travelers.
