An OK Cruise

Sail Date: April 08, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Ship was beautiful with great staff, many activities and plenty of food.

Pros: Ship was beautiful and mini suite was big and comfy with a huge bath tub for 2. The staff was very friendly, the food tasty with a diversified assortment.

Cons: Not enough time in each port. In Cozumel and Belize tendering wasted alot of time. It was always hurry up and wait. In lieu of booking shore excursions on the ship you are better off getting off the ship and where you will find many tour operators offering the same tours at far better prices.

Cozumel, Mexico
Rent a VW bug convertible for $45 and drive around the island. Snorkeling at Corona beach, and Mr. Sanchez's is good. Much of the reef and island was damaged in October and is quite noticable. 7 ships were in same day so we were not on shore until after 11am which made the day too short. Shopping in San Migeul is OK. Beaches on the west shore are great for body surfing.
Don't Miss: Driving around the island onyour own.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Uvero beach was fun. The boat blast and snorkel is too costly through the cruise line. Book it when you get off the ship. Boating and snorkeling on the reef was great.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling the reef.
Belize City, Belize
Cave tubing and aerial trek is a must do. Not enough time to dive or snorkel which is highly reconmmended.
Don't Miss: Cave tubing at Jaguar Paw.
Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala
Not much happening in this run down container port. No decent beaches and only a short swim in the waterfalls.
