Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony


Mostly good entertainment, enjoyed the freestyle atmosphere and dining choices. Cabin nicely laid out.


Some crowding issues, significant focus on sell sell sell,

Ship Quality
Older ship in fleet but well appointed and maintained
Food and Dining
Food was mostly good - just not logistically laid out well to avoid crowding
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice cabin with adequate space and well laid out
Service and Staff
The service staff were all friendly and helpful
Obviously this is based on individual taste but overall the entertainment was good
Onboard Activities
Another individualized area based on ones desires for activities but with the list of activities most anyones desires could be met
Destinations and Excursions
The ports of call were all great - did not take any ship sponsored excursions as we typically do our own
New Orleans, Louisiana
Unloading and embarkation not a pleasant experience but the return trip was better with cooperative baggage steward
Cozumel, Mexico
Good shopping and food
Belize City, Belize
Good place for a horse & buggy history tour
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras
Not so much for shoppers but good for the "Island" ambiance
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Not a whole lot to do there unless you leave the immediate area and take a tour


It has been several years since we last cruised so not really sure if this experience was significantly better than our previous trips but overall I would recommend this cruise for relaxation and fun.
