This was a very different experience than the typical island hopping,  It was a great experience if you enjoy the jungle and other land-based excursions as well as the typical beach activities like diving.

It was just ok, we weren't blown away and we didn't feel like spending extra money on paid shows.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
My daughter was only 2 months shy of 13 so she wanted nothing to do with a club for 6-12 year olds. This meant she didn't have an opportunity to meet anyone her age.

Ship Quality

My only ship design negative is that there should be a family pool just for ages 10 and up. Having to choose between a weird pool in the middle of the little kid water park or the adult only pool earns them a frown.

Ship Tip

Taste and Savor were a nice, quiet way to enjoy an evening meal. The chairs overlooking the adult pool are the better option that the crowded pool deck with drinks and bathrooms close by. Get to the sports activities as they are opening to avoid long wait times.

The locals really trash the area just outside of the cruise terminal but the rest of the island is beautiful.

Belize City, Belize

5 out of 5
Very, very poor, but lovely people.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Very remote, but worth the travel time inland to experience.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
Cozumel itself is very touristy. If you go over to Playa del Carmen to get a better experience be prepared with pesos and don't let them rip you off as a tourist!
