Very disappointing. It was not worth the money spent or points used. Embarkation was horrible. It took 3 hours just to get on board and that was with the Aurea Package. Insulting stares and being yelled at by staff as if we did not belong.

Horrible. Too long of a process and didn't even get a lanyard.

Dining room was fine. Food was so-so. Nothing to write home to mom about for sure. Not even the fine dining. Waitress was very rude.

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
mostly rude, but there were a few who did not look at us or treat us as if we were out of place. Staff in the spa (2) was observed digging in their nose and just wiping the residue on their clothing. And not washing their hands afterwards.

It was okay. Nothing special. Same as a regular balcony room on Carnival Ocean View

Belize City, Belize
