Review summary

Overall, the cruise was a disappointment.  On board activities were few and repetitive.  The port of Trujillo, Honduras was awful.  Our tour package stated a "tram ride through historic Trujillo.". the tram was an old bus with poor air conditioning that was oversold and people had to sit on fold down seats in the aisle.  Historic Trujillo was 4 statues in disrepair!  The citizens were happy to see us as I am sure they are encouraged that the cruise ships will bring some economy to their village, but  this tour was not what I wanted to do on my vacation.

The staff was very accommodating and friendly and we all especially enjoyed the "Washi-Washie" young man at the café.

The bathroom was better than some other ships and the shower was nice.

Ship tip

Beverage packages did not allow for 2 different preferences and assumed both people had to drink. We paid corking fee for wine brought on board, but did not like carrying a bottle of wine around. A pre-purchased wine package would be appropriate.
