A Good cruise

Sail Date: February 05, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This ship is nice but was of a lesser class than some of the newer ones in the Royal Caribbean line.

Pros: Music on ship & entertainment team

Cons: Deck names instead of numbers

Recommends MSC Opera? Yes!

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
Puerto Limon itself is not very interesting but Costa Rica is beautiful & well worth taking excursions outside of Puerto Limon
Don't Miss: trip to rain forest - aerial tram
Samana, Dominican Republic
We took a jeep safari excursion into the countryside. We loved the lush country & the people we encountered. It was interesting & the waterfall we walked to were lovely. The trip itself, however, was a nightmare. We were hooked up behind an exhaust belching truck on a covered cart holding 12-15 people. The roads were undeveloped & while we were on the cart the trip was excruciating - constant bouncing & rattling back & forth. Not too great for older people (or anybody) that can't handle such jouncing around for a long period of time. We made the mistake of sitting in the front of the cart on the way out & I felt sick the whole time from breathing the exhaust from the truck.
Don't Miss: Cayo Levantado

Santa Marta, Colombia
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Very limited. Clearly a man made port stictly designed to make cruise passengers shop only & keep them captive from wandering anywhere along the coast.
