Good Cruise

Sail Date: March 08, 2015

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

This was a nice cruise. Very friendly staff, good food, great casino. I do think that it was a step above any carnival cruise that I have taken. The entertainment was ok but they could use better bands and singers. Duty free shopping is offered onboard but the prices are about the same as ebay prices.

Ship Quality
Nice ship but a little small.
Food and Dining
No lobster night on this cruise!!
Service and Staff
Vincent, my cabin steward was great!! Wilma at the craps table was a joy.
The couple singing on the main stage were more like a cheap karaoke band. Just not good. I felt that all of the entertainment was about as cheap as they could get.
Onboard Activities
The art auction was lame and VERY unaffordable.
Destinations and Excursions
Belize and Honduras are getting more and more dangerous every day.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very small.
New Orleans, Louisiana
Watch you butt in this town!!! Lots of crime.
Cozumel, Mexico
Great port. We felt very safe here.
Belize City, Belize
Belize City is VERY dangerous. When you come here, ONLY do a ship excursion or get a water taxi to Caye Caulker
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras
Only take a ship sold excursion here. The cab drivers will rip you off.Its a $3.00 cab ride to the West End but most cabs wanted $60.00!! Some will tell you $3.00 to take you back to the ship but end up wanting $30.00 to $60.00 when you get there. This is a beautiful place but just be careful here.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Take a cab into Costa Maya. This is a great little place with beautiful beaches and cool little bars.


Food was not bad. The food was better than Carnival but not as good as Royal.
