Review summary

Loved this cruise. The ship was clean, entertainment was good. Loved the Jamaican band that played by the pool. Hard to find a couple of lounge chairs if you don’t get out early but we always found if we went on the top deck above the pool we usually found something. Many loungers are under cover in shade which was a drawback. Moderno, Ocean Blue, Cagneys, and Le Bistro were all fantastic.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Comfortable bed, enough space for all our belongings. Like the shower door, instead of a curtain. Balcony pretty small, but doable. Always kept clean.

Ship tip

Make your reservations for the shows and specialty restaurants as soon as able before your cruise, and other shows the day you sail. Go in standby lane if you can’t get reservations.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
No excursion. Easy port to use.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas Did not visit port

Rough seas prevented us from going.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

5 out of 5
Did Aqua Tubing (fun) and Bamboo beach VIP excursion. Was not as long as I expected and they rushed you at the beach to go back and didn’t stick around for bringing you drinks as they had said.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5

Harvest Caye, Belize

5 out of 5
Beautiful!! Enjoyed relaxing on the beach, paddle boarding the lagoon, walking the beautiful area and swimming and relaxing on the water trampoline.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Great port. Did the party bus to Mahahual beach. Snorkeling was good.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Great port. Went to passion island which is beautiful. Ferry ride was close to an hour each way though, which cuts back on how much time you have at the beach to hang out and have your lunch and drinks.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
