Review Summary

The cruise was very relaxing.  I didn't pick the best ports with this cruise.  Cancun, Belize, Roadan,Honduras and Costa Maya; all very poverty stricken destinations. Once you disembark and get passed the Tee Shirt and Diamond International places, there's not much to see except for the poverty of these people.

We sailed on the Dawn.  For the most part, the food was good.  There were two main dining rooms, The Aqua and the Venetian... but, the menu was the same for either room.  As a matter of fact, the menu didn't change much from day to day for the entire week.  It was a standard menu with five or six new items on it every day.  Aside from the Blue Lagoon and the Cafeteria Buffet, the five or six other restaurants required an additional cover charge ranging from $15.00 to $35.00 per person.  I don''t like this policy because it's disingenuous.  All inclusive food should be all inclusive food.  The drinks were also pricey:  $6.00 for a beer and $9.00-$10.00 for a mixed drink.  BUT, this is true of most cruise ships.  

On the bright side, embarkation and disembarkation from beginning to end was very easy and very quick.  The entire staff was very friendly and very helpful.  Most of the entertainment was very good,music and shows.  All in all it was a very relaxing experience.
