Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The check in process took 1 hour to receive keys.  On the positive side, the room was ready and luggage was delivered after receiving keys.  Dining room food was below average.  The buffet and Osheehan's food was better.  The Japanese Noodle House was good with the exception of the Mahi-Mahi which was old and smelled bad.  Not enough waiters taking drink orders and bar lines were too long with waits.  Is this is what "Free Style Cruising" is?

Cabin / Stateroom
A little small but adequate. Not a good choice of tv channels. No cnn or espn. A lot of wind and wave noise on balcony, more than previous cruises. Only one electrical outlet to charge items.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
1 hour to check in. Hired porter to disembark to shorten wait.
Ship Quality
Very small pools. Not enough for the volume.
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Some staff were rude and unconcerned. Mgr. Traget of Gatsby's was was very good.
Food and Dining
Dining room below par. Wait too long between courses. Lack proper service. Food cold.
Tampa, Florida
Visit Columbia restaurant in Ybor city.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Nice beaches
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Fishing village was nice.
Cozumel, Mexico
Lots of shops. La Mission restaurant was excellent


Ship is old and had mechanical problems before leaving Tampa. Itinerary was changed to accommodate delay. Pools are too small. Wi-fi too expensive, $75 for 100 minutes!??
