All I can say is, wow! This was my fifth cruise, but the people with me were all first time cruisers, including my 7 yr old son. I am not a huge fan of freestyle dining, but the service and food were fabulous! Le Bistro was absolutely wonderful. La Trattoria and shogun were good, and the sushi was good. I would do Le Bistro again.

The main dining rooms were wonderful! There were so many onboard activities that we had a hard time choosing them. Our stateroom was clean and the bathroom was surprisingly large.

My complaint was the casino. It was dated, and the slots were not in good repair. There were machines that broke constantly, and others that never worked for our entire cruise. The casino needs a serious upgrade! My husband enjoyed the variety of card games.

The food was terrific, everywhere. The wait staff in the Blue Lagoon were wonderful and my 7 year old loved being a big guy, ordering his own food and sitting there by himself.

Small, of course. It was clean and well cared for by our excellent cabin steward, Budi. He made my son feel very special.

Too many to choose! We were busy all the time! My son adored the kids club.

Don't miss Snuba with Sand dollar Sports in Cozumel. The dolphins in Roatan were amazing and well cared for! They were in a natural cove. I would not pay to see dolphins in Costa Maya. They were in a terrible little concrete tank. Withhold your business and make sure they know that you won't pay to see animals treated that way. Snorkeling in Belize was excellent, and Galvin had to quasi-rescue our 7 year old at one point. He did it with finesse, and made our son feel ok about the experience.

The casino in Belize was a ball! It was very secure, they held our shopping bags, and there was a huge amount of nickel coin-in slots, for those of us that like to spend 15 cents a spin and hear the clatter of coins! Taxi ride to the Princess Casino is 5 bucks a person. don't worry about changing your money to Belize currency. Very few machines accept it.
