Review summary

Overall, we would highly recommend this cruise as the port were interesting to visit and the ship had loads of entertainment. There was always something to do or see or eat...and we ate lots!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Buffets were plentiful and tasty, the main dining rooms were classy and had an upscale atmosphere. The service was top notch. Did not do any of the specialty restaurants.

Shanghai's Noodle Bar

5 out of 5

This was by far the most fun dining experience, my only regret is we only went once.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We enjoyed the main pool and hot tubs in H2O and used the fitness center a a few occasions. Fitness center was very busy and a bit warm. Fans would be useful.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Amazing, we were not disappointed at all. We enjoyed the Wine Lover's Musical, Cirque Dreams & Steam as well as the shows in the Getaway Theatre. (Million Dollar Quartet & Burn Up the Floor) Excellent performances and very entertaining.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All staff were both friendly and helpful throughout the cruise.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Layout of the ship was good for us as we previously sailed on the Breakaway and therefore already knew our way around. We enjoyed the size of the ship as it gave us the opportunity to walk off all that exceptional food . The only minus is the smoking in the Casino, however I did not notice the smoke as much this time as previously in the Breakaway. Not sure if they have improved the air circulation or there were less smokers.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Loved our cabin as this was our first time with a balcony. Plenty of storage area and the bed was very comfortable. Not a huge balcony but it was big enough to sit out and enjoy the sunrise with a cup of coffee. Always loved the different towel animals left on the bed in the evenings.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

3 out of 5
We did not do any excursion's however we arrived a day early and ventured downtown where Hooters and Hard Rock Cafe are located - Bayside Market Place.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

3 out of 5
No excursion and attempted to walk downtown but were surrounded by locals wanting to guide us the moment we stepped outside the security gates. If we were to visit again we would definitely book something for this port.

Harvest Caye, Belize

4 out of 5
Nice beach but you need to book an excursion if you want to do any snorkeling around the coral reef. The area was well laid out and easy access to the boat.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Loved it. We did an excursion to the Mayan Ruins thru a local company (Tucan Tours) which we booked thru ShoreExcursioner. Afterwards we went to the local strip and had lunch and time to shop around in the local market before being returned to the port.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Mr. Sanchos is a must do. Service was excellent and the beach was a blast. No coral reef to snorkel however they have a few status in the water and numerous fish swimming around to see.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Swift and easy. We had no issues getting our luggage or going thru customs.
