Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
My wife kept asking me, how was your food...okay. It was no better or no worse than food at home or the local restaurant

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Nothing super exciting, pool size was ridiculously small, slides were okay

Choir of Man was the reason this got 3 stars, had it not been for that it probably would have been 2. The pianos seemed scripted with same sets if you saw it more than once, one comedian was good and the other we saw was not

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
Very overwhelming locals, it was ridiculous. The women in the group felt very unsafe so we headed back to the ship

Harvest Caye, Belize

3 out of 5
Had to tender. Nice enough area, the ships "island" is most definitely windward. Delay entering port and some excursions were canceled

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

3 out of 5
Very windy again, the pool/beach area was nice but they made you buy at least 1 expensive drink vs drinking several lower cost drinks to sit in a chair

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
Decent, many Americanized places to hang out which takes away from the authenticity of Mexico


4 out of 5
Pretty smooth and fast
