Had a very fine time. Excellent service from staff, especially dining staff. Food was good, ship was clean and well organized. Time to relax as well as go on excursions.
What I did not like was being told that it was not safe to go into Belize as it was 'unsafe" so we either had to go on a tour or stay on the boat that day.

very good. We ate almost all our meals in the dining room and found the variety and quality good. Had an excellent wait staff who were efficient, pleasant, and very accomodating (even got 2 dinners one night when I couldn't decide).
Enjoyed the ice cream sundaes and pizza throughout the day...

Room itself was average, but it was kept very clean and towels were changed twice a day. Ice was filled a number of times throughout the day. Bed was excellent, as were the linens.
Best aspect of the room was the balcony. On prior cruise we did not have one, and I would highly recommend it.
Used it during the day to relax and read, and took a bungie cord so we could keep it open at night and sleep with the sea breeze.

Many acvtivities going on throughout the day. We went to a few evening shows which were enjoyable; otherwise just hung out by the pool/hot tub which was very pleasant. Gym was good, and equipment was in good condition. Classes were held at the gym but the ones I would have taken cost $12 each, which I felt was excessive.

Stay away from the snorkeling at Cayman Islands - the boat went a total of a quarter mile in/out from the dock, no refreshments, no guides for snorkeling. Could have walked out from shore and saved $49 each.
On the other hand, we snorkeled in Roatan and Belize and both were excellent trips with much attention/guidance from the staff and an excellent lunch included in Roatan. Beautiful snorkeling locations with many corals, fish, etc.
In Cozumel we went on the Tulum ruins excursion. Excellent trip, although long & hot. Went to a very good local crafts store along the route, and then time to explore the ruins and swim at the site. Had an excellent guide and overall an excellent experience.
