Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship was suprisingly spacious. I have been on much larger ships and the lay out on this ship was very nice. It was a stable cruising experience, the ship felt like a ship and not a boat. As some ships have a rocking feeling. We had a large inside cabin and it was great ( much larger than "the other cruise lines"). The shows were very good but the comic was hilarious! We had a blast every night. The ship was clean, food was good and plentyful. The variety on the outside buffets was limited, but you always knew where to get a hamburger if the other dining choices were not what you wanted for lunch. The ports that we visited were: Costa Maya Mexico-very interesting learning about the Mayan culture, we took a tour to one of the Myan Ruins. Belize- great snorkling!!, Guadamala- stay on the ship, for that matter don't look at shore at all- it was a shipping yard It was a very depressed and nothing to see off the boat. Cozumel- We went shopping on the tender boat into shore- great deals on shirts adn some silver jewelry. We didn't see any better deals for the quality we bought on the boat. We set out to find sandy beaches and we must have choose the wrong side of the island- to the right out of the port, five mile walk and no sand just lots of rocks and no restrooms, we took a cab back to the shopping area. Drank a few tropical drinks and had lunch at SR Froggs...Talk aboaut a wild place.

Pros: Great service, open dining gave us the feeling we were in control of OUR vacation

Cons: Guadamala Port- there was nothing there.

Something different every night and the comedian was fantastic.
