Nice high end cruise. Specialty restaurants were excellent. Regular restaurants were very good. The problem with all Western Caribbean cruises is the ports of call.

We went to Costa Maya which is a contrived shopping center to buy future garage sale items as well as overpriced jewelry. We did have the best ceviche of the trip at the restaurant next to Frog's.

Belize City was great because we booked a private tour with Dave's Eco Tours and spent the day having a great time.

Roatan was really a "back water" place that may be good for divers on a budget but is not a great place for cruisers.

Cozumel is the crown jewel of the western Caribbean. Enough said.

I would do it again if all I wanted was rest and relaxation. We got plenty and we appreciated it.
