Review summary

This was a very fun cruise, would recomend it as a family as well as romamtic vacation. The embarkment process was easy and very quick. We just about walked  straight on the ship. The ship was very nicely layed out everything was easy to get to and find. The party was in process when we boarded and the buffet was ample. We felt very welcomed. The cruise staff was very helpful and kind. The room steward was very attentive and made us feel at home but spoiled us with his kindness. The onboard entertainment was top notch. Very comfortable areas to lounge throughout the ship. Walking deck was great for a brisk walk or getting some sea air. Food was great everywhere. Nice to have lots of dining choices. Going ashore was easy and efficient. The tendering was organized and if you were not in a hurry to go off ship, the process was easy. Other than the tender in Belize

taking out tender to the wrong spot :)  the tenders were fine. We felt well informed by the staff when there was something important to tell. The cruise was very relaxing and we had a great time. Exiting the ship was very organized and quick. This was a great choise for a cruise.

Download a beach map before you go. Lots of nice beaches that you can get to by taxi and snorkle at for a nominal fee.

Belize City, Belize

Only take a ship excursion!Not really safe to venture out past the gates. If you can, wait for Harvest Caye so you have a ships island to spend your day.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

This is a port with lots of islands to buy a day pass for. You can get an excersion from the ship or catch a vender when you get off.
