Sail Date: Sep 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

We thought this would be a nice cruise with great ports for my 76 yr old mom and handicapped sister for a girls getaway. I also use a cane.

Food was ok, nothing special. Buffet was limited at night to one type of cuisine, main restaurants took very long for the three courses, which were very small portioned. (I am glad my husband wasn’t there, he would have had to order two entrees!) I expected more out of the cuisine,

The ship is nice, clean, but very crowded. Common spaces were always full. And the main customer service area always had a long line. Difficult to get a deck chair.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MB

Small balcony but bathroom was very big. Close enough to elevators but can’t hear them when in the room. Watch the step up!

Port Reviews


Port was easy to navigate


Nothing fantastic. Beach was pretty, lots of hills to navigate.

Harvest Caye


Costa Maya

Didn’t get off the ship but pretty island


Great shopping!
