Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Main dining room was great. We enjoyed every meal, and our waitstaff were wonderful. Buffet food was good, too. However, desserts were 90% cakes, so would like more variety there.We did do one specialty dining because we had tons of onboard credit. We ate in the Tuscan Grill. Atmosphere was very nice and food was very good. Specialty coffee was a joke. Very little choice, and they got our order wrong most of the time.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
We never had trouble finding chairs around the pools, even on sea days. And only about 10 kids total on the cruise, so no kids jumping on us or taking up space in the hottubs. On other cruise lines we have seen kids in diapers in the pools and hottubs- not here.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Although shows and musicians were all good, there wasn't enough of them. There was nothing between 9:00 and 10:00 except a disco DJ, so we ended up going back to our room for a movie rather than wait till 10:00.

Children's Programs

Do not have kids

Ports of call

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Key west is fun to walk around. We did the trolley tour, with various stops. We visited the Butterfly Conservatory, and absolutely loved it.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

2 out of 5
Nothing to do that was of interest to us.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Because we had lots of Onboard Credit, we did a dolphin encounter. It was alot of fun.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
We did the turtle encounter. We even got to snorkle with the sea turtles. Loved it!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
With facial recognition, it was a breeze. Just walk off, pick up your luggage, and leave.
