Cruise Review

Sail Date: December 31, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Wonderful cruise, staff was very courteous and friendly, food was excellent and evening shows were top notch.  Only one day at sea with high waves, rest of days were quiet. 

One issue is that they had equal number of restaurants that required an additional fee for reservation. Paying for a cruise should include vast majority of restaurants. Also depending of time in the morning it was difficult to find a table for breakfast.

There were also too few chairs poolside, often had to go up one or more decks to sit in the sun.

Did a river cruise but was a bust as there were only a few birds seen, was a waste of time.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Tour arranged with CruiesOnly and tour was a bust. Supposed to have a descriptive tour by boat, no descriptive and very short boat ride. Initially had difficulty in finding the tour person, didn't have our names. Then the tour owner tried to reassure me that his (very) young son was capable of the tour. Where was this tour owner?
Belize City, Belize
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
