Review summary

This was an action packed cruise. Costa, Maya, Mexico and Santo Tomas, Guatemala provided access to Mayan ruins.. The Santo Tomas stop provided a chartered flight to Tikal ruins which was spectacular.

Roatan and Grand Cayman provided snorkeling and scuba diving on their reefs. Puerto Limon, Costa Rica had a great Rainforest tour.  Colon, Panama, had access to Panama Canal locks and a train that went to Panama city and Returned back to Colon.  Cartagena, Columbia, had great shopping.  Ocho Rios Jamaica had access to Dunns River Falls for climbing and shopping.

The two weeks went by very fast.

Great large room, large balcony. TV could have been a little bigger, but all in all is worked out OK.

Ship tip

You should really book excursions through the cruise line unless you are going to be local for shopping. If your excursion runs late and you book excursions privately, the ship probably will not wait if they are scheduled to leave. We were late getting back from Tikal and the ship waited for us.
