Overall was comfortable. The bed was great! Best sleep in years. The bathroom was a great size very spacious and loved the shower jets

Ship tip

It in the complimentary dining rooms as much as possible. Save the buffet on deck 16 for a quick bite. Also take advantage of room service. For the $7.95 charge it is well worth it.

Ports of call

New York, New York Did not visit port

We boarded in NY. I live on Long Island, NY so very familiar with NYC

Port Canaveral, Florida

4 out of 5
We went on the air boat and visited the alligator farm. It was more enjoyable than expected.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas Did not visit port

Due to the weather and needing tenders, the captain opted not to make this stop.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

4 out of 5
Didn't enjoy the hawking from the vendors outside the gates. They were relentless but the prices could be bargained down.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
beautiful place and lovely people. We went on a tour and did a little shopping in town.

Harvest Caye, Belize

I was sick and just got off the ship looked around and back on again. We booked peddle boats but the weight limit was too little for my husband and I to ride. They credited us for the charge.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
We had the Mayan Retreat which was excellent. We had our own Shaman and although I was a little nervous about it - it turned out to be the favorite thing we did the entire cruise.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
We had an all day excursion to the Mayan Ruins. The half hour ferry ride was so rough both ways people were vomiting it was terrible. Then the bus ride each way was two hours and fifteen minutes. We were only actually at the site for an hour. No time for shopping because we had to take the long bus ride back to the ferry and get to the Escape by 4:30. It was truly a waste of a day.

The couple we traveled with were in the Haven so we got off the ship quickly.
