This was our first trip on a big cruise ship and it was very fun. There are so many activities for everyone that it would be hard t be bored. I was impressed by the food on the complimentary restaurants. They were overall very good, except O'Sheehan's, it was not our type of dining. All the restaurants, including the specialty ones were great, the ambiance was awesome and the food yummy. Our cabin was very comfortable, we got a large balcony at the front of the ship. Lots of space and comfy. 

Some points they could improve: 1) The emergency drill given on the first day was only in English and there were lots of Spanish speaking passenger that couldn't understand a thing. 2) We all know that these amazing deals for a cabin for 7 days are the catch, once on board, the drinks are super expensive ($12-$14 per drink) + the 18% tip. Should consider to lower those prices, passengers they don't have any other options to buy drinks. 3) I wanted to use the spa but they only sell you a pass for the whole week for $199 per person. A one day pass would be awesome.

Cabin / Stateroom
Awesome cabin, it was very comfortable and at the front of the ship. Lots of space to store. We loved our balcony, it was big enough to fit two lounge chairs, a round table and two chairs. We loved it!!!

Belize City, Belize
We visited the Altun-Ha and a tour through the city. There's nothing relevant to see in the city, it seems the city was in ruins and lots of garbage. Not worthy.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Try to visit Bacalar Lagoon, it is beautiful
Cozumel, Mexico


I was going to buy passes for the Vibe to avoid the crowds but we found it not worthy. It is quiet but it only had a jacuzzi, no pool with cold water. Instead, we went deck 16, it is only for adults during the day, lots of lounge chairs, a bar a couple of jacuzzis and an area with a waterfall area
