Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2018
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

We had read all the reviews possible prior to boarding on December 6th and we feared the worst. As we walked to board we asked a couple how they liked their cruise. They responded "fantastic."

The embarkation process actually went quite well. There was the usual excitement while in the lines and it wasn't long before we had found a high table in O'Sheehan's, and ordered drinks and chicken wings.

We were on this journey with 2 other couples. This was our ninth cruise, one couple was on their fifth while the other couple was on their first. They soon joined us and we enjoyed each others company. Then it was time to explore the ship, before they delivered luggage to the room.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin BC

We found our cabin to be small yet adequate. Nothing here to really complain about except maybe the balcony was smaller than we like it was enjoyable when we used it.

Port Reviews

Cozumel

I guess you should take an excursion as the close by shopping is a disappointment. Thoughly enjoyed

Roatan

Dangerous country. Don't wander far.

Costa Maya

Same shopping area, just getting bigger every time we go there.

Harvest Caye

You don't have to spend a lot just do a quiet walk about. Not in any way what Belize looks really looks like.

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

They wouldn't let us off the ship.
