Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Dining room had very snobbish staff, we did not eat there. The choices had nothing my wife would eat, unless you paid for it. Buffet food was good. Desserts were awful, no taste, and not a lot of variety. We are used to Royal Caribbean, where the desserts are decadent and plentiful. There was lots of places to sit and the buffet was set up extremely well.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Lots to do. The movies under the stars was really well done, right down to cozy blankets and popcorn.

Entertainment

Children's Programs

We don’t have children.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The buffet staff were awesome. Our room steward Hari was awesome. The dining room staff was snobbish. I asked for a lemonade in the dining room and was told that lemonade was not served in the dining room, and that I could buy a sprite. We told the waiter that we did not drink alcohol and they looked at us like we had 5 arms. We left and went to the buffet.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
He ship was absolutely drop dead gorgeous. The Piazza is impressive. Very well designed. Comfortable seating everywhere, even if it rains outside. Buffet area is huge and very well organized, lots of places to sit. We really liked the hand washing areas, instead of just hand sanitizer.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The bed was awesome and extremely comfortable. Extremely clean. Nice large closet. Bed was a great size. Very comfortable bedding. Nice sofa to sit on. Balcony was a good size as well. The drapes are premium quality. When you close them, it’s dark. Loved the colour scheme.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida Did not visit port

We just had enough time to board the ship.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
We took a ferry from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen. We did the snorkel and Cenote adventure. Our guide Susanna was amazing. The beach stop for lunch was beautiful. This was the only excursion we booked through the ship.

Belize City, Belize

5 out of 5
We did the city tour and the Atunha ruins. These ruins were the best we’ve ever seen. Miss J was a riot and a wealth of information.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
We did a 3 stop snorkel with lunch. The guides were awesome and the reef was amazing.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

1 out of 5
Tourist trap. Would never go back.

Disembarkation

Was good until the shuttle to the airport. No signs to tell you which bus you should be on
