Pleasantly Surprised!

Sail Date: December 2011
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa

-Easy and enjoyable embarkation process
-Very clean ship; made me want to keep it clean; saw guests, including myself bringing dishes to the station
-Staff is very neatly dressed, at all levels of service, uniforms precise
-Staff is always smiling, distinguished this cruise from the five others I have taken. I felt very welcome, all seven days.
-Fabulous band by the pool, Xcite! Mixed up the tunes, lots of foot-tapping & dancing, day & night-Sound system by pool "just right".
-Loved how the staff from cooks to officers would often get "into" the music, a little bit of dancing and lots of smiles
-All announcements were loud and clear
-Being a sun worshipper, I loved the barbecue at the pool. I never had to go inside to eat during the day.- Excellent fresh grilled food, from burgers, to chicken to paella.
-Enjoyed the crosswords, trivia and sudoku available every day in the library
-Loved how everything started on time!
-The variety of choices in More the Market Buffet was phenomenal. I couldn't try everything I wanted to in seven days and we ate breakfast & dinner there every day.
-Enjoyed carrying around the little Daily- very convenient
-Very helpful that the Excursion Desk was open almost all the time
-Found the amount of alcohol in cocktails to be "correct" as opposed to other ships where we swore the bottles were watered down!-Inside stateroom was very comfortable; plenty of storage space, including snorkel gear
-Wet suits dried quickly in the shower stall
-Temperature control very precise; loved the cool and the warm when needed
-Ship Excursion in Belize: snorkeling from a boat then beach time on an island; Fantastically run by the guy in charge; very polite and well organized; Great rum punch which kept flowing after snorkeling of course!
-Excellent disembarkation instructions; clearly written, placed in cabin and posted on bulletin board.

This was the best cruising experience of our lives! Less

Port and Shore Excursions


Went on a snorkel & beach excursion with the ship. Went on the Belize Glory and beached at Bannister Island. A great day!

Went to the town of Majuhal- ate at 100% Agave! Fabulous, an authentic local restaurant!

A spectacular day of diving with Chucho Divers at Palancar Garden. Great spot, excellent dive master and captain. Highly recommended!
