Review summary

Adequate ship... Old but well maintained. Great staff. Entertainment and inboard activities were the weak link. Except for the Roatan port... Great stops for a western Caribbean sailing. Costa Maya a nice surprise. Plenty to do... Fun stop

Ship Quality

Older ship... But we knew that. Well maintained and clean. Easy to get around

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Plenty of storage. Room and balcony small by 7 day cruise expectations. Bathroom... Way too small. Shower was a joke... Had to open the shower door to wash my knees!

Ship tip

Accept its an older ship... But enjoy the journey

Ports of call

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

It's a construction site! Dirty and small. May be nice when it's done but a waste of time until. We've been to the other Roatan port which is very nice... This one... Stay on the ship

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Great shops and entertainment right at the port. Lots to do even if you don't leave the port area. Nice beaches.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
Always a nice stop. Varied things to do... A taste of Mexico at your pace

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Never a disappointment. Something always going on once the locals wake up.


5 out of 5
Easy departure. Not rushed off. Times for disembark were very close to on time... Who wants to leave the ship anyway?
