Chop's Grille

We went there on our anniversary and the food is amazing. You could have cut the steak with just your fork.

Small ship.

Diamond Club

This was our first time being diamond and really enjoyed it. Kumar, the diamond Concierge was so nice. He always made it a point to come over and sit with everyone.

Alan, our Concierge was great. Loved spending time in the lounge. Quiet. We had breakfast there every morning.

Casino Royale

1 out of 5

Small which is to be expected but the smoking was so bad couldn’t even enjoy. The non-smoking section isn’t that big so it didn’t help. Lots of penny and nickel slots. Had a hard time in finding quarter slots. Didn’t gamble at all.

If you can afford it book a suite.

Ports of call

Tampa, Florida

5 out of 5
Tampa is a nice city.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Beautiful! Went on an excursion to the Hemingway House and Sloppy Joes. Much cheaper if you do it yourself. Over priced.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Well organized for a taxi. We went to a resort that wasn’t an excursion.

Belize City, Belize Did not visit port

The water was rough and it would have been very rocky tendering into the Port. There really isn’t a lot if shops there.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico Did not visit port

Very disappointed. The water was to rough for us to dock.


5 out of 5
Fast and smooth. One of the benefits when staying in a suite.
