Sail Date: Sep 2021

We joined our friends on this cruise and booked over a year in advance during the pandemic not knowing if we will ever go. It was very relaxing with only approximately 50% capacity. No long lines and not crowded. Quick to get Guy's Burgers or Blue Iguana.

The only hassle was getting tested in advance. Testing availability was limited and they changed it to 2-days prior. Since we have to fly from Nevada, it only gave us one day to test. We ended up using the eMed monitored home test.

Embarkation was smooth with checking vaccine and testing documents. For a staggered boarding time, we still had to wait to board in the crowed embarkation room. They should only let passengers in within their appointment time. Debarkation went really quick and no hassle with luggage or customs.

Cabin Review

We had an Aft Balcony on deck 9. It was extended and allowed for two loungers. Additionally it was covered and when the infrequent rain came, we did not get wet. It looked down over the balconies below us but we had complete privacy. I would definitely book this again if the price was right.

Port Reviews


We went SCUBA diving like we have done on many cruises to Roatan. Anthony's Key Resort was excellent as usual. Very happy with the diving.
