Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin and balcony was very nice. The room steward kept the room very clean. For a cruise cabin, it had plenty of space.

Ship tip

Make restaurant reservations as early as possible.

Ports of call

New Orleans, Louisiana

5 out of 5
We did not do an excursion but had a day before and a day after the cruise to enjoy New Orleans.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

4 out of 5
The port was okay, it was smaller than a lot of the ports. We went on the snorkeling adventure and it also was just okay. The water was very rough and the snorkeling was not the best. However, we did see a few colorful fish, a turtle and a stingray.

Harvest Caye, Belize

5 out of 5
Our ziplining excursion got canceled due to weather so we ended up taking a tour of the island. The driver, Shorn Rich was excellent. He provided a lot of background and history of the area.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

George Town, Grand Cayman

4 out of 5
We did not do an excursion here. The shops and areas around the port were pretty good.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

3 out of 5
We did not do an excursion here. The vendors are extremely aggressive and they tend to get in your face. Telling the politely that you are not interested doesn't usually work at least not for the first few times you tell them. We did take a cab to see the waterfalls which was quite nice.


5 out of 5
Getting off the ship and getting our luggage was easy and relatively quick
