All had fun!

Sail Date: November 21, 2015

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

We had a group of 9 kids and 15 adults. The Thanksgiving cruise was perfect to get friends and family together. The Jade had plenty of activities to keep everyone busy and enjoying the cruise. Cripton the Magician is a must see show. All the shows were really good and you should make plans on seeing them all. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Plenty of space for all our stuffs.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation was easy but Disembarkation was a pain. Took over an hour to go through customs.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
We went to Paradise Beach in Cozumel and kids had a great time. We did ziplining in Belize and had a fantastic time. And just hung out at West Beach in Honduras. We didn't book excursions with the cruise but did it all on our own ashore at each port.
Onboard Activities
Bingo was a big hit with the adults and kids.
Children's Programs
Kids didn't really go to kids club as we had lots of kids in our group already and they wanted to stick together.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Houston, Texas
Cozumel, Mexico
Take a taxi to Paradise Beach and hang out for the day. They have lots of blow ups in the ocean for kids/adults to do a ropes course, loungers and just an overall nice, beach day.
Belize City, Belize
Cave tubing was closed on the day we were ashore so we did ziplining. It was so much fun. You can book with one of the tour operators ashore.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
We took a taxi to West Beach and spend several hours there due to limited time ashore. Beach is really nice.


If you have a big group, a great spot to meet up is the Medusa lounge. Kids can play Wii while waiting for the tender boats or just gathering everyone for dinner. Also, a good lounge for Karaoke.
