Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Happy with the food in MDR and Garden Cafe

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Lots of trivias, which we liked a lot. Prices were crap. We played daily 3 times, won several trivias and in the end we had nearly no choice to exchange our points. A T-shirt or a cap was all we got.

Entertainment

3 out of 5

We were pleasantly surprised with the layout and condition of the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Cabin very small with a porthole. No view at all, so we better had taken an inside or obstructed view.

Ship tip

Take no oceanview cabin with a porthole

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

Only embarcation

Cartagena, Colombia

4 out of 5
We took an excursion with the ship to visit the old town. We didn't like the shopping stops. So you better take a taxi if you want to spend more time in the city.

Panama Canal (Cruise Into Canal)

4 out of 5
Interesting

Colon, Panama

3 out of 5
Very small and poor neighborhood. We were only a few hours ashore, just enough to visit a very small shopping center.

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

4 out of 5
We made a private excursion to make a boattrip on the canals. We saw plenty of animals and lot of birds.

Harvest Caye, Belize

4 out of 5
Nice beach resort with a small zoo. There was a butterfly farm, lots of parrots. We enjoyed the place a lot.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

3 out of 5
I ordered a private tour. We visited a monkeys Sanctuary and some other animals. The tour of the island was not very interesting.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

3 out of 5
Very touristic place, nice beach and some attractions (dolphins, voladores, mayan costumes)

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Went smoothly and we got a cheap bustransfer from NCL to the airport
