Our room steward never introduced himself to us...not what we've experienced on other cruise lines

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Very choppy ship layout. Some elevators did not stop at every floor, so you would have to find another way to your destination.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Perfect for 2 people, couldn't imagine having a family of 4 in that room. I'm pretty sure our room was not cleaned properly before we arrived. I found a large ball of hair on the floor at the foot of the bed and what appeared to be food on the bathroom floor. My husband almost stepped on an open safety pin as well.

Ship tip

If you don't care about the view, the 4th floor is a great place to stay. Easy access to the gangways at ports!

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida

Nice pool area for those that don't like the beach

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

3 out of 5
VERY crowded as there were 4 large ships in port.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

4 out of 5
I rated this as good because of the amount of people hounding you as you leave the port area. We had a prearranged tour but had to go through a long row of people yelling at us to take excursions with them.

George Town, Grand Cayman
