Western Caribbean

Sail Date: March 2009
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa
Our Port of embarkation was Tampa. There was six on our group. The Embarkation process was quick and easy. No problems. We got on the ship and had a couple of cocktails before going to our rooms. All of the rooms that I saw were nice and spacious. We explored the ship for a little while which was easy to navigate. We had the late seating for dinner at 0815pm. Our waiter was very nice and he had his work cut out for him on the first night due to us enjoying multiple "Drinks of the day" and Long Island Iced Teas before dinner. The food at dinner was ok at best. I think the Buffet Dinner on the Lido Deck was much better than the sit down dinner. The ship was older but for the most part clean. I think in the future, We would book on a newer ship. The casino was awesome$$$$$. The sports bar was also cool where we watched the final four. The first day at sea was a little rough and choppy. All of the employees on board were very nice and accommodating.

Port # 1: Grand Cayman: More Beautiful Island. We booked an excursion with grandcaymenexcursions.com and went waverunning to stingray city. We stopped and saw some stingrays(Not bad). I totally recommend this excursion.

Port # 2: Cozumel: We booked a beach bbq at the Wyndham Resort. This was a really nice relaxing afternoon. We laid out by the beach and pool and had a really good lunch.(Try the Guacamole). All food and drink was included in the price for about $45 a person.

Port # 3: Belize: We booked with MAJOR TOM Excursions and did a cavetubing and ziplining combo. I think it was the best excursion we did. Major Tom's guides were awesome. We were a little weary at first about the ziplining but once you got up there(AWESOME). After the excursion, we stopped for some lunch cooked by the locals. If you book the excursion, get the lunch too($5.00 YUM).

Port # 4: Roatan: We really weren't fans of this port. My friends did go and hold Monkeys which they said was pretty cool. Not much to do at that port.

If you book excursion, Book them on your own and not through the ship. Your groups will be smaller and the the price will be cheaper. 2 of the 4 ports, you had to take water taxis to get into the port. And do yourself a favor, pay attention to the time you need to be back on the ship so the ship doesn't get held up(People will not be happy).

Disembarkation on Sunday got a confusing. There was no direction and people were forming their own lines to get off the ship.

We had a great time in general Less
