Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Specialty options were nice, but we were not aware of the cover charge required for those restaurants in advance and the fact that reservations were needed for them as well.


5 out of 5
We were never without something to do. And we felt perfectly comfortable doing nothing at!

Ports Of Call

Belize City, Belize

3 out of 5
We did the Butterfly House excursion at this port. Again the long bus ride was not expected.

Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala

5 out of 5
Another long bus ride...

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
The long bus ride was unexpected. Also, we did not know in advance that we would not be able to use our personal cameras during the excursion and were not prepared with cash in hand to pay for the professional photographs taken by the tour guides. This needs to be known in advance.
Don't Miss: Swim with the Dolphins

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
This was our second visit to Cozumel and just as before, the people are friendly, and very welcoming. Of course, the shopping is terrific!
Don't Miss: Dune Buggy/Snorkel excursion. Jesus and Eduardo are the best tour guides!

Pros: Freestyle Cruising!

Recommends Norwegian Sun? Yes!
