This is an older boat, well maintained. Don’t go expecting the Odyssey of the seas because it is not. The service and food was excellent. There are only two pools. So the main pool was filled with kids. The adult only pool was very nice. But it is a covered pool.

The entertainment on board was entertaining but probably the worst of any ship I have been on. There was one blonde who sang in French who was amazing not sure why she wasn’t more showcased. I was disappointed there was no comedy shows. The shopping was the worst of any ship I have been on. Looked like dollar store items. It was meant to be a quick get away and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The crew as always work so hard. Never an issue getting drinks by the pool. The specialty restaurants were all excellent. Some of the best service and food I have experienced on any ship. The main Buffett was chaotic and omelette station had long waits . I hated that there were no towels as you got off the boat for excursions.

Cabin Review

Clean, quiet cabin and very comfortable mattress and pillows. Only complaint is shower was super tiny and shower curtain look like it was as old as the boat and had stains. Toilet had issues flushing at times. Not enoughPlugs .

Port Reviews

Costa Maya

The beaches in costa maya are not the best. We went to a beach club on our own. Malceon 21. It is quiet resort. Great service and comfortable beach beds. High end food and drinks. Live music was excellent.

All inclusive drinks and lunch was $ 100 per person.


We booked a catamaran through the ship. I love catamarans but this one was crowded and had a fair amount of kids. The crew was excellent and fun. The snorkeling was good lots of fish . The beach we went to was pretty. If you have kids this is a great choice. The beach they brought us to had inflatables so again a lot of kids. I would pick something more adult oriented next time. The crew was very safety oriented as well . We then walked around the port and felt very safe. Got some great deals at the Cariloaha bamboo store.
