Embarkation

Went very smoothly

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Freestyle must mean mediocre in food choices. No seafood options unless you went to the specialty restaurants and paid extra money. The food we did get was good, but I can make chicken and pork chops at home.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Didn't use any.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Didn't go too many, but Carl Anderson the comedian was awesome. The nightly music was good.

Don't have children.

Cabin / Stateroom

Loved having a balcony. Bathroom was a pretty good size for on a ship.

Ship tip

For the price we paid, I expected to be a lot more wowed than I was.

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida

3 out of 5
Didn't really do much in Tampa.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

4 out of 5
Nice area. Shopped and sat at a bar an watched the dolphins perform.

Harvest Caye, Belize

1 out of 5
Pretty much a joke. I was excited to see Belize as a port. However, this was nothing more than a glorified amusement park. No city center at all. A resort feel with pools and beach. Not impressed.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

4 out of 5
What we say of Roatan was lovely. Our excursion (ATVing) went great. However, we didn't get the entire time of our excursion as we were late debarking due to another ship taking preference by docking at a pier and we were delayed tendering in. No compensation offered or really any apologies.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
Did tequila tasting. Piddy was very knowledgeable on our excursion. Shopped quite a bit.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very quick.
