Great ports, so-so food

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Enjoyed the overall cruise, especially the ports. The specialty restaurants were excellent regarding food and service (Churascaria and Le Bistro) but the free dining choices were less than spectacular. Dining room staff seemed unsure of themselves and many dishes were disappointing. Buffet was okay but not as many choices as other ships I've been on. Room steward, Daryl, was excellent.

Ship Quality
Packed a lot of ammenities on a small ship. Pool was way too small.
Food and Dining
Specialty restaurants great-dining rooms and buffet looked better than they tasted.
Service and Staff
Dining room staff was awkward. Room steward Daryl was great. Cruise director Richard Matic was great.
Only saw parts of some shows.
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Enjoyed each one. Hadn't been to 3 of them previously.
Cabin / Stateroom
Typically small but efficient. TV lacked ESPN International channel and balcony had no ventilated matting to drain water. Could have used in room waste basket. Linens were fresh.
Roatan (Isla Roatan), Bay Islands, Honduras
Eco walk and beach. Friendly people.
Belize City, Belize
Museum and Celebrity Restaurant where food was wonderful and reasonably priced.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Krazy Lobster Restaurant and beach. Free use of pool, kayaks, tubes. Free margarita and we ate on the beach. Friendly service.
Cozumel, Mexico
Shop and go to Buccano Beach.


If you're driving to Tampa, best place to park is Parking Doctors. Reasonably priced and close to terminal.
