Review summary

Love the layout of the ship and especially Central Park. Hated that there were 1200 kids on the ship. The adult area of ship closed and given over to a large group for the week so no one could use it. Stuck with screaming,running children all week. Cruise line should have warned us of this before and let us back out. Not really a relaxing vacation. More like a week in hell. Could have vacationed in a grade school for a lot less money.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Buffet and main dining room were good, but specialty restaurants definitely not worth the money.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Liked having movies in the theater, but would have been better if they were at 2 or 2:30 PM when less other things happening.

Grease wasn't very good. Ice show was fantastic and our absolute favorite on ship.

Ship tip

I always loved my time dining, but BEWARE they have changed it with no warning. Now you cannot eat until 6:45PM and have to take whatever scrappy table is available as it no longer has its own separate dining room. Totally blind sided by this and very unhappy.

Okay beach. Like this island much better six years ago when it was quiet and had more beaches that were open to everyone without charge.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Really loved Costs Maya! Did an excursion through another company to the ruins and the lagoon. It was absolutely wonderful and highly recommended.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

Very extremely dirty(piles of garbage all over) and very poor & third world. Not an enjoyable excursion at all. Never want to go there ever again.

Cozumel, Mexico

Did a resort for a day and loved it. Had everything there.

Spent an hour in line and had to go down the ship and around the dining room and then walk back the length of ship outside. Had 4 lines coming together at the end. Not a good system and no organization.
