Review summary

We had a wonderful cruise as always! I am not sure we would book another short cruise again. We did encounter more drunk passengers on this cruise then we have ever had. We didn't let them ruin our time, we tried to avoid the areas where they were being obnoxious. We understand everyone is entitled to enjoy their cruise differently.

The porter met us as soon as the car stopped we unloaded car and he promptly took our bags. Once inside we got checked in promptly without delay. Boarding the ship was quick and easy.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Every staff member we came in contact with was friendly and helpful. Room steward responded promptly to requests.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We enjoy the ships with promenade deck for our walks. Atrium was busy with various music and activities. Sun deck was nice, not enough chairs untied so we had to untie the stack ourselves. The inside bathroom is a little convoluted, the commode is angled so taller men have to almost sit sideways to avoid knees hitting wall.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The room was a good size and kept clean by our steward. The bathroom layout is weird, my husband had to almost sit sideways so knees didnt hit wall due to angle of commode.

No excursion, just shopping.

Harvest Caye, Belize

We didn't do any excursions, we just walked the beach and shopping areas and relaxed in beach chairs. There is a really nice kids water play area. Lots of things to do.

Miami, Florida

3 out of 5
The port was clean. The staff was somewhat disorganized when giving directions on where to go.

Disembarking was a little disorganized. Each staff person told you a different place to line up for the easy walk off process. They should have the process down and consistent every time.
