Room Type: Balcony

This ship is a little older, but still has plenty to offer regardless of your interests. Everything was as clean as you could expect and the rooms and common areas were in excellent condition. There are plenty of dining options to choose from, though many feature an additional charge, so we stayed away from those. I wasn't disappointed in the standard dining options, though. The breakfast buffet is surprisingly delicious and diverse in its offerings and the Windows restaurant was superb night after night for dinner. The staff in the dining areas were always polite and helpful and amazingly good at remembering names and faces. There was always plenty of entertainment in the evenings, though we tended to roam the decks on our own and just take in the sea air. We had a wonderful trip.

Pros: Eating whenever you felt like, friendly staff, plenty to do aboard ship

Cons: You have to pay for soda

Cozumel, Mexico
Not much different than being stateside, aside from the near constant enticements to come to someone's store. We did find a wonderful little beachfront restaurant called "Playa Corona" which I would recommend to anyone looking to relax and enjoy some snorkeling or swimming. There are plenty of hammocks in the shade and the staff were all especially friendly. Just be prepared for the taxi rides to be different prices to and from places.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
This island is still recovering from a recent hurricane, though everyone we met was engaging and polite. I'd recommend going ashore. We went on the catamaran and snorkel excursion. The crew was engaging and entertaining on the trip to and from the reef and the snorkeling was pretty great. The trip back included as much beer/soda/water as you cared to drink, which didn't hurt a thing.
Belize City, Belize
This country was simply amazing. We are seriously considering traveling here every summer from now on. The people are friendly and interesting and the country itself is simply amazing.
Don't Miss: Mayan ruins
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Beautiful island full of plenty to do.
