Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2021
Cabin: Interior Upper/Lower

We enjoyed the serenity deck(15), the thermal suite, cucina del Capitano restaurant, where I had the Best meal of the cruise when I ordered the short ribs. So very tender an tasty. I enjoyed being able to choose whether to relax or join an activity. We must have walked 50 miles per day on the ship alone.I didn't like the nosiness of the crew,or one staff member from the kitchen informing me that she was coming into my stateroom. Not cool. I didn't like the pressure of buying spa treatments, or jewelry every single time as we walked by the staff. We would sail again, however I would do things a little different. I also did not like the spa technician who did my keratin treatment and charged me for 3 products that I specifically told her that I did not want. I had to ask her to remove them, that I didn't want them. Very aggressive and aggravating.

Cabin Review

Interior Upper/Lower

Our cabin was okay.

Port Reviews

Belize City

We went to see the Mayan ruins and it was awesome. We didn't have any time to shop,due to a 2 hour drive to and from the ruins.


The people in charge were scattered and unorganized. We had a decent time in spite of the rain.


Shakira was awesome! Informative, knowledgeable and we learned a lot. We enjoyed our time, though I was nervous about the gangs she spoke about.
