Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2015
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

After a mechanical delay of about 12 hours, we finally sailed from Tampa. I was in fear that they would refund money and we would be told to leave the ship. The ports to visit were changed which made notifying our friend in Roatan a bit difficult but managed to get the word to her. We did not take any shore excursions this time, have been on the same rote about 4 times previously. Only went into the town in Roatan to visit friend who teaches school there.

Our steward was mostly invisible but the one down the hallway was very nice! He assisted with ice etc. We had 2 animals at night, room was kept very clean, and everything functioned. We used the spa for hot tubs and lap pool and the staff was so friendly.

The food in the buffet was great, very tasty and good variety except for seafood night when there was no other choice if you were allergic to seafood. I just had mushroom soup- no crackers available- that night.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony

Cabin BA

Hardest bed ever! Made my bones ache. Could do away with the coffee table so it would be easier to move to balcony. Room was kept clean throughout the journey. anything over 1 week would suggest mini suite.

Port Reviews

Tampa

Boarding was OK, lack of directions hampered the process. Disembarking was a nightmare. Took forever when we were carrying our own bags. Long line, lack of directions.

Cozumel

Stayed on board

Roatan

We met friends there. LONG walk to exit port area with total lack of directions.

Costa Maya

Stayed on board
