There's a lot to review so I will try to just summarize as much as I can.
Embarkation: Computers went down, had to wait in line approx 20 mins until they were up again. No problem after that, got on board fine. Was taken to our room 6252...last room on the back of the boat--hard to locate!
Food was being served up in the big apple. Buffet style and we ate a lot in the big apple. There's always food available in the big apple all throughout the day.
Food was very good both in the big apple and in both dining areas. There was a horrible vibration in the Seven Seas restaurant the first night. However, that subsided and we ate there mostly every night. Arnold, our waiter was the best. He's soooo funny and reminds you of William Hung from American Idol. Food servings are small but you can order as many times as you want so the portions didn't matter. We loved the freestyle, you can basically eat at whatever time you want. That really helps when you are in port and don't want to rush back just to eat at a certain time.
Our room and overall ship appearance: The room was small, I mean really small. It is not condusive for 4 people. It's also not in the greatest shape. Although our cabin steward Renaldo kept everything tidy, there's not much to do with 4 people and 7 suitcases (not all large suitcases) in a closet. The shower is miniature. The room shows a lot of wear and tear. However, I saw some other rooms, mainly the inside deluxe rooms that were nicer. So my recommmendation would be an inside deluxe room. In addition, there's a strong vibration in the back of the boat. I would recommend getting a room further towards the middle.
The ship also shows some wear and tear mainly in the hallways. The main areas are kept fine. It's not glitsy at all. It's conservative and somewhat plain but still nice.
The casino was fine. Small but fine for a ship. Plenty of slot machines.
The pool area is nice. Plenty of chairs at all times. 2 pools which are pretty large and 2 hot tubs. Food is always available!!! And of course drinks, drinks, drinks!
The shows were good. The cruise director and his staff(Kevin Warner) really do a nice job. Get to the shows early if you want a good seat (poles sometimes block your view).
We missed Belize due to the rough seas. Very disappointing! The seas were rough up until we got to Cancun. I actually got sea sick and needed a patch. I never got sick before. We had 15 foot waves and thunder storms several nights.
Cozumel: Been there before and always do Chakanaab. Wonderful little area to relax, swim with the dolphins or snorkel. 2 restaurants are there (service is horrible though). Be careful snorkeling. To get into the water you must walk down rocks and the seas are splashing against the rocks hard! You can get hurt if you are not careful!
Honduras: Very sad to see such poverty. We went to the Salt and Pepper beach which is no longer an excursion offered by the ship. Paul David, Robert Plant's brother from Led Zeppelin, has a nice little area on the West side with a restaurant and beach. He's funny and wild! Not much to do here but relax, snorkel or dive. But it is a very pretty beach and he serves a nice lobster lunch. The drive there was an experience. We saw such a different way of life. It makes you appreciate everything you have so much more.
Cancun: We really had a great time here. Went on the excursion from the boat, catamaran sail and snorkel. It was fun! We then had a couple hours to shop afterwards and it is all right there where the tender brings you. Don't forget, DO NOT PAY FULL PRICE FOR ANYTHING! There's so much negotiating you can do in all of the islands!
Debarkation: This took a couple of hours. First you go to customs on the boat (scheduled times), then they call you off the boat according to your tag color that they give you the night before leaving. We took NCL's tranfer so we were called off first.
Overall, we had a very nice time. Although the boat is small, it's still a big vessel (I was imagining it to be really small when we got there and it wasn't that small). It never really seemed overly crowded anywhere. The food is good, the entertainment is good, the ship is very clean. This is a great cruise for first timers or anyone looking for a cruise at a great price.
Anything I didn't answer, just post your questions, I would be glad to tell you more.
