Sail Date: Feb 2020

We had such hopes for this trip. The ship & itinerary fit our needs on paper but in reality we were disappointed with the execution of this cruise.

Not only did embarkation change from Puerto Morelos to Cozumel after booking our flights but the trip was advertised to include diving in Honduras. On boarded we learned Puerto Cortes was a dirty shipping port with no diving. The water was green with lots of trash . We didn’t even bother getting off .

As the week progressed we hoped things would improve but they didn’t. The ship & cabin were nice but there was absolutely no on board activities during the day & the evening entertainment was minimal. They had 3 girls that danced; accompanied by a singer on 4 nights but the shows only lasted 20 minutes. The best entertainment was a group of local dancers that boarded one evening.

Cabin Review

We had a premier cabin on the 5th floor. The room was very nice but cramped.
