Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The ship personnel are the best! We wanted for nothing, we never even had to wait! They were very friendly and attentive. We can't say enough good things about it.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Since it was one of the older ships, the design was great but a little out-dated. The decor was nice but you can tell it was a rush refurbish; (wrinkles in the wall paper, scratches in the finishes and items of that nature), however, it was still pleasent.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Our cabin was extremely clean and comfortable. The only problem we encountered was that the bed was very hard.

Ship tip

Make good use of the daily schedule; it helps you maximize your time and enables you to choose your favorite things to do. It also helps with tips on shore excursions and people to contact.

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida Did not visit port

We landed on time to get board the ship.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
We took the Hop on - Hop off train. It was great! We enjoyed Key West immensely.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
We just wanted to walk through on our own; however, we were bombarded by salesmen at every turn. I know it how they make a living; but they won't even let you look around.

Belize City, Belize Did not visit port

My husband did not want a transport to port.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico Did not visit port

We choose not to go ashore.


5 out of 5
