We only ate meals that were included in the cost of the sailing. Silhouette was lovely, the buffet was just average.

Ports of call

Did not do an excursion as we were in the city 2 days prior to sailing. Really enjoyed the beach.

Key West, Florida

I'm sure it's lovely but it was painfully painfully hot the day we visited. Took a tour of the shipwreck museum and rode the Hop on Hop off trolley. Needless to say we did not Hop off!

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Took the port pass excursion. Loved the bird aviary and enjoyed our time at the pool with free beverages.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Swimming with the dolphins and manatees was amazing. Although the excursion was a bit on the high side , we really did make a memory. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the inability to use my camera while with the dolphins. The price for the photographs was exorbitant! A single 5 x 7 picture was $40, and packages started at $149!

George Town, Grand Cayman

I thought all the excursions were extremely overpriced for what they offered.

Disembarkation

2 out of 5
I did not know there was an option for us to take our own luggage off this ship. And I am confused as to how we drew one of the higher numbers to disembark.we did not get off the ship until almost 9:30. I understand that we did not have an early flight to catch, but number 36? The first number I heard called to disembark was 2, so just imagine our wait time.
