Review summary

Relaxing and delicious. It was nice to sit back and enjoy the wonderful food and amazing sights.

What is the point of an embarkation time if it takes 2 hours to get herded like cattle aboard the ship. The long lines and disgruntled people was not a way to start a vacation.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was amazing and plentiful! We had the drink package (which didn’t include bottled water) and took advantage of it. We ended up buying a bulk water option once aboard.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Most activities didn’t seem to get going until afternoon or evening. Most everyone took to the pool deck, making it over crowded. Bars during the day were at a minimum, as was the availability of live music.

The shows were all scheduled at times that were hard to get to, especially if trying to get to a specialty restaurant. It seemed like you were forced to do one or the other...or stay up late night to enjoy.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We spent a lot of time in the evenings at the Maltings Whiskey Bar. The service from our bartender was fantastic!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
One of the cleanest cruise ships I have been on! Weird layout getting from one end to the other. Private sections of the boat (luxury upgrades) restricted access to sun decks.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Comfortable room. The room temperature started to get warm in the middle of the night for some reason. No towel animals the whole cruise, which was surprising.

Ship tip

Try everything you can fit in your mouth. It is all delicious!

Ports of call

Harvest Caye, Belize

4 out of 5
Nice and relaxing once you get ashore. Beautiful water and everything you need. Tender operations took two hours, which seemed excessive.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

4 out of 5
Took an excursion with an outside vendor to the Mayan Ruins. Wonderful and educational experience!

Walked off with our luggage. I can’t imagine doing it another way.
