Review summary

We survived on little sleep! The warmth, sun and beauty of the Caribbean was amazing. I'm already planning my next cruise, and can't get over the experiences and the people I met. Awesome experience.

Had to wait about 30 minutes to embark. Our attendant was not very helpful, she didn't hand us a map.

Enjoyed the water slides. Didn't hit the fitness center as often as I would've liked, but facilities were beautiful.

Attended Cirque de Dreams show, it was very intriguing!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Bartenders were excellent, we had our favorites by the end of the week. Our room steward always kept the room in tidy shape. Everyone was excellent. The only person I didn't care for was the DJ in club Bliss. He played good music but was grumpy about requests.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Amazing, beautiful ship. Never felt like the ship was dirty. Our hotel after the ship was in poor shape compared to the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Perfect size. Worth the upgrade. When we were in room, we were on the balcony a good amount of time. I would say a balcony is worth it. I cannot imagine sailing without one! My friend and I had lots of room. Never felt crowded when getting ready.

Ship tip

Keep exploring the ship! You will discover a new area each day!

Excellent. Did Tabyana beach party and snorkel. Was my favorite excursion. Beach was gorgeous, and snorkeling was amazing. The small groups for snorkeling were nice.

Harvest Caye, Belize

5 out of 5
No excursions, but Harvest Caye is beautiful and it was amazing to lay on the beach between the pool and ocean. Don't book an excursion here---enjoy the port!

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Beautiful port. We didn't get to enjoy the water because we went and saw the ruins, but it was beautiful. The ruins were well worth it. Our guide was knowledgeable. We booked a deal through for ruins in Costa Maya and Catamaran Sail/snorkel in Cozumel. EXCELLENT.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
It was very warm, but stormed a little first. The water here was beautiful, as well as Playa Mia beach. We booked a deal through for ruins in Costa Maya and Catamaran Sail/snorkel in Cozumel. EXCELLENT. The snorkeling wasn't as much fun as Honduras, because the whole group snorkeled at once, but we saw a sea turtle and a sting ray! The Catamaran dropped us off at Playa Mia beach and paid for our taxi back to the ship.
