Service and Staff

Best cabin steward ever (and I have been on several cruises)

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Smaller ship, very crowded at pool area, but I had a very large balcony so I avoided all of that.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Bathroom was bigger than on any previous cruise and we were thankful for that. Very comfortable for two passengers. Large deck was a real treat!

Ship tip

Just a little smaller ship. Bring a dose of patience with you - remember you are on a lovely vacation!

Ports of call

New Orleans, Louisiana

5 out of 5
First time to New Orleans. Really fun town with huge personality. Have to wade through the seedy side and just enjoy all the great food, drinks, sights. Just keep your blinders on and enjoy. Felt very safe just venturing out by ourselves.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Did the speedboat/snorkeling excursion - had a blast. Port had lots of shopping, very busy at the port - 6 ships in port that day.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
I played golf, wife rode horseback. Both were great!

Harvest Caye, Belize

5 out of 5
A beautiful Cay,, perfect for sunning and relaxing. Plenty of room for all.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Visited the Mayan ruins, very interesting and educational. Small crowded port area. Very windy day, many of the water-related excursions had to be cancelled due to the wind danger.

We purchased Priority Embarkation/Debarkation and we are glad we did. From leaving our cabin it took only 15 minutes and we were sitting in our cab heading for our hotel!
