My wife & I boarded this cruise with lowish expectations after a not so brilliant experience on another cruise line several weeks ago. However, we loved everything about this cruise. Food was amazing, even in the buffet, and there are so many dining options to choose from. A dining highlight for us was the steak and lobster dish at Cagney's Steak House, followed by a berry cream brûlée. Onboard entertainment was brilliant. Loved 'Burn the Floor', 'Million Dollar Quartet', and the 'Levity Group Comedians'. Great range of shore excursions in some really interesting ports. We did an airboat ride in Belize, rode Segways in Costa Maya, and swam with dolphins in Cozumel. Every single staff member we encountered was friendly, professional and helpful. Communications from the cruise director etc. were timely, clear and helpful. We had great fun on this cruise and felt that we got great value for the money it cost us. We highly recommend this cruise to anyone looking for a less formal (and more fun & family friendly) style of cruise.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Air Boat Tour
    The 45 minute airboat ride was great fun. However, we only saw a crocodile from a distance. Guides were very informative.

  • Segway Tour
    Loved learning to ride the Segway & the tour. We personally, would have preferred more time on the Segway & less time at the beach.

  • Dolphin Swim & Encounter
    This was the highlight of our shore excursions. It was absolutely amazing to have the opportunity to swim and interact with such an intelligent and expressive animal.

  • Island Tour
    We most liked the visit to the Garifura village with their performance of traditional music and dance (and somehow my wife & I were chosen to get up & dance with them), and the boat ride in a lagoon was quite relaxing.
