Review Summary

We highly recommend this cruise.  We cruised with a party of nine family members and everyone had a blast!  There was always something to do, and the weather was PERFECTION.  The meals were great (even though the Minstrel chef wasn't really playing his "A" game a couple nights), and service was excellent.  Our room attendant was helpful and informative, and the service crew in the Windjammer were friendly, attentive and unobtrusive.  Sailing with this ship and crew was a treat we'll never forget. 


We took the Cozumel excursion to Playa Mia beach and we were amazed by the variety of activies and the SERVICE.  This day included food and beverages as well as a wide variety of water activities  Our niece pronounced it "the best day EVAH!", and everyone agreed.
