Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

I appreciate the fact that food is available at all times, so when returning from a shore excursion one can go directly to the Lido and eat without having to spend additional money buying food off the ship.
We were three women in the stateroom but had enough space to store all our gear plus suitcases under the bed. It worked just fine, though I must say I was a bit apprehensive before we got settled-in.
Both of my roommates were seasick, one for an entire day and a half. The other threw up three times and then was fine.
People on the ship were mentioning that March is a rough month for a cruise, and that Jan. and Feb. are better weather-wise.

Pros: Snorkeling at Cozumel

Cons: Due to winds, unable to dock at Roatan. Missed that port completely.

Recommends Ryndam? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom was the very last room at the back of the ship. Several times a day we found ourselves walking the tremendous distance fore to aft, aft to fore, etc. etc. You get the picture. Middle of the ship best.
