All of the ports were great. I was disappointed with how they handled a river in Belize making it impossible to get to our Xunantunich excursion. They waited to tell us it had to be canceled after riding an early morning tender over, right before boarding the bus. Options were take their offer of full price transfer to another site 2 hrs away (but not the amazing xunantunich ruins) or head back to the ship. If they had told us earlier we could have slept in a bit and done one of the other ruins excursions or another excursion all together. We still had fun, but disappointed in how that was handled.
Be sure no matter what you do that you do some excursion (carnival or private) where you visit sting ray city in the grand cayman. Yes it was crowded...but you HAVE to visit. That was an amazing experience that you will treasure.
The boat is a little cheesy in decor, but who cares. The staff is amazing and this was a truly awesome trip.

XunantunichThe river had flooded out the crossing, so we could not visit original ruins. Not happy with when and how this was found out, but the back up ruins and tour were still great.View All 41 Xunantunich Reviews
Beach BreakJaimes Blue Reef Club was the highlight of the entire trip. He and his staff made for the best day of the trip. Food and drinks and beach and relaxation all rolled into one.View All 289 Beach Break Reviews
CozumelCozumel was great, we left the port village and turned left. There is a open air restaurant on the corner almost directly across from margaritaville that blares 80-90s rap, but had the best food...octopus faijitas. Then we got on a horse drawn carriage, be careful as this was an experience and rates and expectations need to be discussed. All in all we had fun, but afterwards made us wish we had done a beach club or excursion.View All 6,161 Cozumel Cruise Port Reviews
