Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We ate at specialty restaurants La Cucina, Ocean Blue, Cagney's Steakhouse and Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville at Sea. I would not recommend La Cucina or Ocean Blue. The main dining room was very good.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Our sons (22 & 15) loved the water slides. Fitness center was very small and always packed.

Ship Quality

Ship was in excellent condition.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was in great shape. It was kept clean, but our room steward just left the sofa bed open as well as the pullman. On previous cruises, they were closed during the day and opened back up during evening room turn down.

We booked a private fishing charter with the Wahoo Slayer.

Harvest Caye, Belize

5 out of 5
This port was nice and relaxing. Food was good, drinks were cold and we had a great time in our private cabana. We also did the Placencia Mangrove tour, which I would not recommend. Boat was packed and we saw the tops of two manatees.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

4 out of 5
We did the Mayan Adventure Park. Safety not up to U.S. standards, and people were getting hurt on the water slides.
