Sail Date: Mar 2023
Cabin: Spa Mini-Suite with Balcony

Overall, our cruise was great. The food was excellent, shows were great, specialty and complimentary restaurants good, and the crew/staff awesome. There were a few hiccups: Toilet in our balcony spa cabin 14***, initially was not working properly, causing some concern but corrected by the third day. Asst. Genl. Mgr. Sayeed helped to make us comfortable and so did the Bloody Mary's from Asep at the Atrium Bar in the early mornings. Some dining venues were packed so we couldn't get in. Weather was great as well as our time in the spa which included one relaxing massage. The cruise venue including one port on the Yucatan Peninsula, and three stops on different islands. All of these locations were hit hard by the pandemic and they were glad to have the tourists back. Overall, I must hand it to the crew who worked tirelessly day-in and day-out to make our experience memorable...which included the toilet issue. Planning in advance and knowing what to expect when we boarded helped to alleviate the stress. Lots of young people on board due to Spring Breaks but we managed to avoid most of the crowds. Patience is the key whenever you cruise.

Cabin Review

Spa Mini-Suite with Balcony

The larger shower stall was very nice. Toilet did not flush properly but that was corrected.

Port Reviews

Costa Maya

Mayan Ruins were interesting but the bus ride was long. Our guide was very knowledgable and 100% Mayan. Weather was nice but somewhat hot and humid. We booked this tour through NCL.


Reminded us of Cabo San Lucas or Acupulco, very tourist oriented but the best port of our cruise. Found a taxi that took us around the island.

New Orleans

The French Quarter was packed. Lots and lots of people. Too much odor of weed, but people very friendly.


Caught a taxi for tour around the island. Overall, very nice. Ocean waters are great for scuba or beach activities.
