Bad experience. Cruiseline allows smoking onboard in the Bars and Casino. Ports of call were Key West (good) Belize City (OK 15 min Tender into land), Santo Tomas de Castille (commercial port - waste of time), Costa Maya (hurricane ravaged village, BAD STOP ). Older ship, ok condition, weird floorplan - no flow (corridors would just end into a wall. Had to backtrack and go either up or down a floor to continue).

Food was OK, but fairly bland. Needed more variety. Found out about wine, beer, soda clip cards, but too late into the cruise to make it worthwhile to use.
