Review summary

As I said in the beginning, third time is a charm.. We have been on this exact cruise 3 times in the last year and love it. One reason besides the Getaway and the ports is some of the great crew members. One of which, Praeven, who is a bartender is fantastic and very caring about his customers.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Did 3 specialty dining rooms and every other one we could. Great food all around.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
From what I know they were all good but we did too many other things to even use our spa package this time


5 out of 5
All shows were Fantastic. The Bee Gees night left a little to be desired given a women signing their songs. She was great but not quite the same.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All friendly and courteous. Some went out of their way to assist us.. Great. One staff member, Praeven, (not sure of his last name) was our favorite bartender and one of the most caring individuals we have met. Many could learn from this man's attitude.

Ship Quality

Ship tip

Be prepared to see so much in a fairly short time.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

Wanted to visit but our plane flights did not allow for us to make the time we wanted.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

Did the Little French keys again. Unfortunately we could not swim with the 50 pound jaguar as had done in June but still had a relaxing fun filled day.

Harvest Caye, Belize

3 out of 5
Did not do an excursion this time as we purchased a Beach Villa which was very nice but we felt a little over priced for what we could have done otherwise with the funds.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Did a small area outside of the port which was fantastic. All the food, drinks and even massage for a very nominal fee.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Did the jeep excursion which we did last time. We great as usual, went to different places this time.


3 out of 5
Getting off the ship was simple and well done. The challenge was it took us about 45 minutes to get onto a bus to the airport. The line and hot weather was a challenge.
