First Cruise / Honeymoon

Sail Date: February 13, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We enjoyed the trip for the most part.  Very disappointed that the ship had to bypass Roatan for a medical problem with a passenger.   We had plans for Roatan and will probably not go back for awhile.  The Crew was great but constantly pushing you to buy the overpriced packages (Drink, photo...etc)  The drinks they were serving should not cost $13.  Its not like they ship was buying the ingredients for them from one of the islands.

Cruise Photos

Cabin / Stateroom
The Cabin was what we expected. The 3rd floor was good with the larger window. We did not notice the rocking of the ship in the night. The room steward cleaned the room twice a day. He was like a Ninja.....we never caught him.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Due to a medical issue with a passenger on the way to Roatan the ship had to reroute to Cozumel. We bypassed Roaton on the schedule. Docked at Cozumel for first and last port. Belize and Costo Maya where great. Once was good to go to Cozumel but going twice when planning on once and little or no notice to make plans did not make for a good port day.
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs Did not bring Kids. This ship (Vision) did not look like a ship that was designed to have too may kids aboard. (Not a lot to do for them)
Service and Staff
Very Friendly. Was a bit put off by everyone trying to push the overpriced packages (Drink, photo, spa....etc) If they would lower the drink prices and photo prices they would probably make more money because more people would use it.
Food and Dining
Tampa, Florida
The tram in Tampa is $5 all day. It was a good way to get around.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Did not make it....Ship bypassed it and we missed the chance to see it.
Belize City, Belize
Friendly people. The people working at the shops were not as pushy as they were in Mexico. The reef snorkeling was amazing
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Not a lot to do. We took the shuttle to the beach and paid $10/ea for the beach chair, Umbrella, use of Kayak and snorkeling gear. They included the first 2 drinks for free.
Cozumel, Mexico
Plan ahead.....pick a couple things to do since if there is a medical problem on the ship it will be rerouted to this port and you will spend more time than you expected here.


I recommend flying in the day before the ship leaves. Made the departure day so much better.
