Review summary

We selected this cruise mainly to just get away. The economical price, special bonuses and the smaller size of the ship sealed the deal for us. Everything went well on the cruise, but we were lucky to not be susceptible to motion sickness since the last day had very rough seas.


5 out of 5
Maybe the best, fastest cruise embarkation we've ever had!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Very enjoyable dining venues - food quality was excellent; service was variable.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Visited the fitness center a couple of times - plenty of machines to use. Tried to use the pool a couple of times, but either was very crowded or closed due to rough seas.


4 out of 5
Theater shows were somewhat variable - left early from the "comedy" show; magician was amazingly good; variety show (Rock Me) was great.

Children's Programs

No kids with us.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
Only visited the port to get on and get off the cruise. Port was well organized and easy to get to.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

Relaxing day on the beach - took the shuttle into "town" and walked to the beach area. Got an expensive beer and a cheap massage (which was great!)

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
Wanted to snorkel, but rough seas caused cancellation of all trips. Visited the older shopping areas which still have a little bit of charm.Vendors weren't overly aggressive and prices were negotiable.


5 out of 5
Very fast, efficient disembarkation. First time we had the "facial recognition" entry system which was very quick and easy.
