Loved all the food, specialty dining was good, not excellent and all the bars and longes were top notch!! Loved spice H20 for the location, sun and fun!! Bartenders and all the people we met were so exciting!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Slides were extremely fast and fun, Water fall sitting area at Spice H20 was our favorite spot on the ship!!


We did not see any shows, we were so having a blast with comedy bar, watching the football games with friends and dining.. most of our time was in ports and was so relaxing back on the ship!

Children's Programs

Empty nesters and loving every minute of it!!

We loved our balcony cabin!! Port side aft was a great location for us!! Loved the spacious closet, the bathroom was way perfect and so enjoyed the large vanity and enclosed shower.. sitting on the balcony was amazing, the bed was very very comfortable..

Don’t have expectations, go in with an open mind, take in the fun and savor all the memories!

The best port IMO!! Booked private driver and spent an entire day in the island.. 1stop, “victor Boddens monkey business” where we held a a baby sloth, monkeys and fed birds!! Next we saw the first hospital opened by a US woman, the schools, downtown shopping, the beaches, airport and top island for fabulous views!!

Harvest Caye, Belize

This was a terrific stay for a beach day!! Took our backpacks in and had a cocktail at the Restraunt overlooking the beautiful pool.. pool was cool, refreshing and the beach was fun.. we did some shopping, couldn’t of asked for a more relaxing day..

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

Nice, didn’t tour but visited the shops.. all shops pretty much all the same, ok pricing.. very much cookie cutter but nice to take a walk and visit.. loved, loved, loved the flamingos!!

Cozumel, Mexico

Been here before on a carnival cruise, it was amazing, shopping and snorkeling, we also rented a Jeep and cruised the island with 2 couples we met on the ship, what a blast!.. NCLs port was very disappointing .. dirty, locals harassing for taxi, that wanted to charge us $30 to get to the beach!! Locals were staring at us as we tried to walk around, made for a very uncomfortable time.. we went back on the ship after 2 hours.. note: if your in the NCL port, get out, maybe set a tour or taxi prior to getting off in port and go down towards Carnivals port!! A lot of fun there, shopping and clean.
