Our recent Cruise

Our cruise started rather negatively, with a long wait to get aboard the ship. This was probably due to the number of passengers boarding, but neveretheless,  the wait seemed long. It ended the same way, with a long wait to exit the ship.


The Ships staff was courteous to the extreme, and the overall cleanliness of the vessel was outstanding. In order to assure a germ free environment, a staff member stood at the entrance to all of the restaurants and spritzed anti-bacterial spray on the hands of all who entered. To me, this was a definite asset due to some adverse publicity in the past about the passing of germs from one passenger to another.


The food offerings were many and bountiful. I can honestly say that all the food I ate during the trip were, without exception, excellent.


My wife and I toured the available Mayan ruins and the tour was informative, but was a long bus ride from the ship.


Our favorite tour was in Belize which consisted of a private Horse and Buggy ride with a very informative young native man. He imparted much knowledge about the living conditions of life in Belize for more than an hour at the low, low rate of fifteen dollars for each of us.


Kudos to the staff of the ship. This cruise will hold a featured place in our lifetime memories of good times.

Cabin / Stateroom
Clean, but clean-up was usually early afternoon. The bed, originally set up up as two twins, were pushed together to make a Queen size bed. As a result. bed entry was only possible from one side due to a built-in on the cabin wall.

Hangers were supplied for our clothing and there was sufficient towels and toiletry items.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Process took far too long. The "Easy-Off" process was totally lacking in organization and it appeared that at least half of the passengers aboard used it to carry off their own luggage.
