5 day Western Caribbean cruise

Sail Date: December 07, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Cabin: GTY

My husband and I had never cruised on a ship of this size before, but were very pleasantly surprised. In general ALL the staff onboard were always happy to greet you wherever you were on the ship and our cabin was looked after by a very willing, helpful, polite Franky from Goa - nothing was too much trouble for him.  The food was very good served by very friendly waiters/waitresses and we were always accommodated wherever we wanted to sit in the dining room. Most people made an effort to dress smartly each evening which was a pleasure to see and because it was mid-December the ship was discretely but nicely decorated for Christmas. The organisation for embarking and dis-embarking was very well co-ordinated with little waiting time, so overall an experience that we would repeat again with the same cruiseline.



Ship Quality
Food and Dining
My husband thought the wine was a little on the pricey side
Cabin / Stateroom
Would be quite happy to book another ocean stateroom without a balcony as we spent little time in it.
Service and Staff
Service with a smile
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Would not bother to dis-embark in Cozumel again


Did not feel over crowded with 1900 passengers onboard
