This cruise was my first one out of the port of Houston, loved every minute of it and missing it as I work this week.  The food choices were wonderful and plentiful, the ship is beautiful, entertainment was nice.  , Cozumel was beautiful as always, didn't care for Belize City, it was ugly and dirty and should be taken off the cruise line up.  Trujillo Honduras is a new stop, so there was no docking and no tender boats, they used the life boats as tenders, which was fine. This port is new and way underdeveloped compared to other cruise stops.  For the price I paid, and the fun I had on the ship, in the end, the ports didn't matter anyway.

Ship Quality
Beautiful Ship
Food and Dining
Fabulous Food and many choices 24-7
Service and Staff
Staff was fun and friendly yet very efficient.
Lots of entertainment choices every day
Onboard Activities
Something to do every day all day long without ever leaving the ship
Destinations and Excursions
Cozumel is great for shopping and excursions, Belize City should be taken out of the port line up, Trujillo Honduras is too new for judgement at this time.
Cabin / Stateroom
I loved the cabin, it was dark during the day so we could stay up late at night and sleep without the light of day bothering us. Perfect size for two adults and maybe one child.
Houston, Texas
This port is beautiful
Cozumel, Mexico
Belize City, Belize
Hated it, will never go back
Trujillo, Honduras
Needs more time to develop for cruise stops, but, it is a really pretty place.


When they advertise FREESTYLE, they aren't lying, everything on the ship is open to your schedule so no pressure to eat when you are told, no pressure to dress up to go to dinner in the dining rooms and all do not disturb signs are taken very seriously. IT ROCKS.
