We thoroughly enjoyed each island we visited in the order that we did.  We started with Roatan where we learned about the culture, experienced firsthand the poverty on the island.  The Land & Sea excursion we booked through Hilton Honors was sketchy at best, but turned out OK.  Our tour guide was a very nice young man just out of high school and actually coming to the states in the fall to attend college on a soccer scholarship.  The next port of call was Belize where we visited their museum and learned a great deal about the Mayan culture.  Poverty level was a slight bit less prevelant than in Roatan.  We headed for Costa Maya and experienced the Mayan tribe doing their ritual pole jump, watched the porpoise show which was great.  Last stop was Cozumel.  There we took the tour to the Mayan Ruins which was fascinating.  It was quite obvious that both Costa Maya and Cozumel were not as poverty stricken as what we had experienced on the other two island, although there are undoubtedly areas that we didn't see that the poverty level was just a great.


The cruise itself was great.  Service in all areas was extremely good, but I must admit not as great as the larger ships, which we cruised on previously.  The weather left a lot to be desired, but of course, that's no ones fault.  You take your chances.  Entertainment was also very good and as always, the food was great..  The Activities Director, Elvis, was exceptional............he basically made the entire cruise what it was!!


If and when we book another cruise, it will definitely be on one of RC's larger ships.

Our stateroom attendant was very good. We didn't want for anything. Cabin was always neat and clean and he was very friendly.
