Great cruise great ports

Sail Date: January 10, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We bought the cruise through Groupon and it was a great value we had a balcony cabin that was nice but it was a forward one in a bit bumpy our cabin steward was wonderful as was the crew. Reports were great ports of call with a lot to do. The shore excursions were well organized and as promised.. the only short skirt and I would not do again it is the Belize City Calypso tour it was hard to hear and the traffic around the little train speed exhaust Roatan was our favorite port and it's an absolute beautiful place to visit we went ziplining in Cozumel and it cave park that was outstanding I highly recommend it if you have no walking or health problems the only negative I have to say about the entire trip is the shower could have better water pressure the food on the cruise was good but did not meet our expectations except for the specialty dining I would take this cruise again

Cruise Photos

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was great there was only one outlet which was a draw back but we were prepared for it the shower could have better water pressure I know is not on the cruise to watch TV but it would help if they have more than four channels
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Getting on the ship when in Tampa with seamless and quick getting off of the Portugal was well organized even in Belize City with the use of tenders
Ship Quality
The crew keeps the ship clean and has many handwashing station
Destinations and Excursions
All of the shore excursions were well organized and very good I would not do the Calypso train again in Belize City
Onboard Activities
The reggae band at the pool was outstanding and much better than other cruises that just had a DJ
Service and Staff
Our cabin steward was awesome
Food and Dining
The food in the regular dining room was ok the specialty restaurants were excellent
Tampa, Florida
Cozumel, Mexico
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
If you just want to relax and Costa Maya take a $4 cab ride to yoyo beach there's cabanas restaurants snorkeling diving all right there
Belize City, Belize
Belize City was a third world city dirty congested and didn't feel safe I would not recommend the Calypso train
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Roatan was outstanding the city was outstanding the island was outstanding the diving was outstanding and the food was outstanding we will go back to Roatan some time to spend more time there


Archiving was far forward and and felt the emotion if you're going to take electronics you're going to need a bus bar to charge the items is only one plug in the cabin halfway through the cruise they have bag of laundry day we can fill a bag of clothes and have it have them wash for $20
