Probably my biggest complaint is the size of the cabin, especially the bathroom.  Neither one of us could sit on the toilet without being inches from the wall.  So we both sat angled which wasn't very comfortable.

The ship was clean and the stewards were wonderful each night doing the little towel art that puts a smile on your face.

As to food, while it was good, we both felt the food was better on Holland America.  The buns in the Tsar restaurant were fresh the rest of the pastries on board were a little dry.

As to entertainment, there was too much dancing and singing and not enough variety.  The magician was good but a little risque and this was a shown children were invited too.  He even had a child on stage and it just wasn't right.

I did appreciate the way they handled the shore excursions as it was all very organized, especially the day were off shore in Belize and took boots into Belize.

Destinations and Excursions
There wasn't enough of the Mayan Ruins to see for a 3-hr round trip bus ride. The river cruise was nice and the young lady speaking on the bus telling us about Belize was exceptional.
Cabin / Stateroom The bathroom was especially atrocious. The placement of the toilet is just wrong.
Also, it was mentioned there was a refrigerator on board. They didn't say it would be stocked with hard liquor. I did not appreciate that at all.
Houston, Texas
Cozumel, Mexico
I hated seeing a big Starbucks sign. We had a great excursion going on speed boats but the snorkeling was poor.
Belize City, Belize
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
I would go back here in a heart beat. It was BEAUTIFUL beach with lots to do and the snorkeling was great. We even went parisailing and that was a blast.


We loved eating our breakfast on the Aft of the ship. There was food there however, if we wanted something else we just went to the Garden Cafe and returned. Also, I felt it was too cold in the Cafe where outside it was pleasant with a breeze and it was easy to talk to one another.
