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.

The art auction was lame and VERY unaffordable.

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.

Belize City is VERY dangerous. When you come here, ONLY do a ship excursion or get a water taxi to Caye Caulker

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.

Take a cab into Costa Maya. This is a great little place with beautiful beaches and cool little bars.
