Review summary

Nice atmosphere on board. Not a party ship but very relaxing. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The passengers were also nice. We always had someone to talk to and meet. The ship is clean and it was a very nice trip. Having 4 ports of call made a great itenerary as sea days can be boring for us.

Food is the same on buffet every breakfast and lunch. Dinner in Dining no Room was good but a little slow. We had some impressive dishes and some average.

Tampa, Florida

Very easy embarkation and disembarkation in Tampa

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
We love Cozumel, accessibility for wheelchairs is outstanding. Vans with lifts are readily available to take you anywhere. Playa Mia beach resort is accessible and has Beach wheelchairs free to use for the day. Cozumel is a very friendly place.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
Port area is clean and beautiful. Easy access to beach for free. There is a beach wheelchair here we used but it is also hard packed sand and wheelchairs can roll easily to the water here except maybe 6 feet of soft sand. Also did zip line excursion with South shore zip line adventures. The people here are very friendly.

Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala

3 out of 5
This port is a work in progress. It’s a shipping port and not very pleasant to look at. We chose not to do an excursion, but there are options here and I recommend getting away from the port. There is a large inside building that is very welcoming to visitors. We got our passports stamped and shopped. Jade and stone and silver jewelry is beautiful at good prices. Many unique items here and local culture to learn about. We watched natives perform dances and music it was very nice to see. Very nice people here

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Costa maya is one of my favorite ports and has so much to offer. This was our second trip here and it is a quickly growing area. This time I visited the village of Mahahual via taxi and did a reef snorkel. Best....Day....Ever! Extremely beautiful reef and crystal clear water. Conch shells, tropical fish, and sea turtles galore! I could live here
