Nice Cruise; Balcony is a Must!

Sail Date: March 07, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

We like our itinerary.  We loved our balcony cabin.  We also liked the Garden Cafe Buffet.  We also liked the cookouts on the deck.  However, we liked least the evening meal in the sit down restaurants.  We did like not having set times for dinner, but we did like having room service.  The menu however, was limited.  We actually took a tray upstairs, selected our meals and brought it back to our room to eat on the balcony.  We also were not impressed with the desserts.  We loved the washy, washy crew heading into the buffet.

Houston, Texas
The cruise terminal is new and well laid out. See the Space Center.
Cozumel, Mexico
We've been here on many occasions. We experienced Playa Mia and loved it.
Belize City, Belize
Nice casual bar for beer in the center area; inexpensive native beer. You have to tender here too. Bring cash, a Visa or M.C. but they do not take Discover.
Trujillo, Honduras
Relaxed and easy to navigate. You did have to tender but once there we walked to the town center. Wait to buy items in the town market. $1 for a fresh coconut drink! Beer is cheap. Nice internet cafe as you walk up the hill on the right. Buy a coke and the internet is free.


Avoid having to walk topside exposed on the deck with windy weather. If you are on the 9th floor and need to move to the aft upper decks, follow the hallway all the way to the end and take the exit left then move up and or down the stairs as needed.
