Good Cruise Except Trujillo Banana Coast

Sail Date: November 01, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We had a nice room and a great staff.  Entertainment was lacking the first couple of days and wasn't very good overall.  There were not enough tables and it was hard to find a table at the breakfast buffet.   The new port of Trujillo was not ready for cruisers.  Very little shopping with mostly the same trinkets.   The water was murkey and the snorkeling was the worst I have seen.  The water is so shallow the cruise ship creates huge clouds of mud.  This probably contributes to the dirty water in a shallow bay.   On the tender back I heard mostly negative comments.  Nothing good to do there.

Ship Quality

Cozumel and Belize good. Trujillo terrible.
Houston, Texas
Cozumel, Mexico
Shopping. Most vendors will take one-third of asking price.
Belize City, Belize
Take the water taxi next door to San Pedro or Cay Caulker
Trujillo, Honduras
Tip - Nothing to do here. Stay on the ship!


You can take your breakfast buffet to La Cocina to eat in peace and quiet and not wait for a table. The casino is not player friendly.
