The ship is beautiful and very large. It is so clean and the staff is very friendly. They had things to do every day on board and even on the days that we were in port, they had activities planned. The food was plentiful and very good. My family and I loved the free style dining. We could eat whenever we wanted. We liked the dress up nights too. It gave us a chance to get dressed up and feel like we were going out for a night on the town. The gift shop was large and had a big selection. They offered a lot of different excursions to the islands. We did a different excursion at each port and they made it very easy to get back and forth to the ship. We had a great time.

Cabin / Stateroom

The interior staterooms were large enough for two people without feeling cramped. Would not recommend more than two people to stay in one room.

Grand Cayman was nice. It was very commercialized. We went sea kayaking and snorkeling there. The kayaking was fun but a little long for people who haven't kayaked in a while. Once we arrived at our destination, we snorkeled for about an hour. We swam near a wrecked ship and saw some good fish, but not as many as we had hoped. It was nice. We also did a lot of shopping here. It has a lot of different shops to choose from. We ate at Paradise Restaurant on the main street. We had the fish and chips, which was very good.

Cozumel is nice. We went ATV'ing and had a good time. We really enjoyed the ATV part of the trip, but the sight seeing was not very good. We thought the Mayan Ruins would be a lot more grand than they were. We did wind up at a nice little resort and spent about an hour or two at the beach which was lovely. The water was beautiful and clear.

Honduras is very pretty. We enjoyed the Tabyana Beach party and Snorkeling on this island. The snorkeling there is great. The water is beautiful and the fish were amazing. We got a lot of great under water photos there. The people are friendly and very accomadating. The barbeque was good and the bus rides to and from the ship were not too long.

We swam with the dolphins there and visited the Dunn's Rivers Falls. Both were wonderful experiences. The dolphin swim was exhilarating and would recommend it. The Dunn's Rivers Falls was fun. We had a private guide take us up the River instead of waiting in the long lines of different groups. The tour guide was great, but they do expect a tip at the end. Our guide took photos of us with our own camera and we tipped him $20 for his service.

We did the cave tubing and jungle trek here. We enjoyed it very much. The jungle trek was very interesting. Our guide told us a lot about the trees and other vegetation. The cave tubing was a lot of fun. The water was clear and refreshing. The caves were large and we really enjoyed the whole exparience.

Pros: I liked the itinerary the most.

Cons: Nothing, I liked it all.
