Sail Date: Nov 2011
Cabin: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

Plus side - My husband and I were very pleased with the food and service. We loved the Vitality menu, because we could eat well! Stateroom attendant and servers were outstanding.

Ports and tour selections were also good. Ship was showing signs of wear, but was very well maintained. Stateroom and balcony were very nice and clean. We really liked the set-up and it was roomy.

Negative side - There were over 900 kids on this Thanksgiving cruise. Kids constantly walked and ran through the solarium (for adults only) and they were all around the exercise track walking the wrong way, cutting through, etc. There were also no quieter areas in the dining rooms, as quiet tables for two had families of 6 and 8 all around them.

Cabin E1

Roomy. Nice balcony with nice views. Quiet location.

Port Reviews


They made several upgrades to this port since the last time we were there. We did the catamaran tour, and it was a lot of fun. Snorkeling wasn't good - maybe because seas were choppy when we were there.

Belize City

We did the ruins/Old River cruise tour. They were fabulous and I would recommend this to everyone. Guides were very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Wildlife was phenominal!


We always go to the public beach in Cozumel and then walk through the shops. We always have a good time snorkeling and swimming. They have added a nice nature trail. Loved it!
