Extremely crowded to get on the ship, probably due to everyone having to show their negative covid tests etc.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Very good! ChiBang was good but VERY small portions. Bonsai Teppanyaki tons of food and great presentation. Lobster in main dining room was outstanding. Pig & anchor a "10". Guys burgers disappointing though as they no longer serve fresh cut fries. Pizza and paninni excellent.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The Bolt roller coaster is amazing, huge Serenity deck, pools and hot tubs were great! The zip line is fun but I skipped the part over the water as the mechanism looked a little scary to me without a redundant safety, but many people did it without issue.

Shows were top rate, very funny comedians in Punchliner (Percy Crews and Jim Brick) CD Chris is full of energy and has a great voice.

Children's Programs

Didn't take any kids

Had a terrible excursion, complained and got a partial refund. Port is difficult to find your way back to the ship.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

Beautiful, our new favorite port. We did the 4 wheeler tour through the jungle and private beach. Lots of fun. Can't wait to go back!
