My son ate here numerous times on our 5 days cruise. I went once it was good food however staff not very attentive. Had a glass that was cracked sat with cracked glass for 10 minutes before I could get anyone’s attention. Service a little slow at least out of all the places we ate. However overall a good place to get great food.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very clean even in the buffet staff was always keeping tables clean and used dishes picked up.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin for the 2 of us was a good size, very clean, plenty of storage space. Balcony was small and hard to get around each other if both were out there together. Overall no real complaints. Bathroom was bigger then I expected. Having a shower door instead of a curtain was great. Plenty of room to turn around and shower.

Ship tip

Watch as many YouTube videos and read all(good and bad) reviews. But keep an open mid about everything and have a good time.

Ports of call

New Orleans, Louisiana

5 out of 5
Because we had a 5:30pm flight out we did the city tour. It was very informative my 17 yr old son thought it was a very interesting.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
We did the Xplor park excursion here. Had lots of fun.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Because we were only here from 7am to 2pm we chose to just spend the day in the port. Very clean lots of places to early, shop, and get drinks. Vendors were not very pushy at all.


5 out of 5
Because we did the tour of the city it was easy and painless. Met in the Tropicana dining room at 8:30am we then just followed a staff member off ship to baggage and out through customs.
