Nice short getaway with friends.

Sail Date: April 26, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We traveled with neighbors and had a wonderful time. Met every night for My Time Dining and our servers were terrific. Nice balcony room at a great sale price. Would definitely do it again.

Ship Quality
Nice size ship....I don't like the huge ones.
Food and Dining
Great food and servers. Definitely worth buying a bottle of wine and they hold it for future dinners.
Cabin / Stateroom
Love the balcony accomodations. Only way to travel.
Service and Staff
Our room steward (Betty) was great. Even made a towel pet of a collie when she heard we had one.
Shows were okay. Early comic show was kind of lame.
Children's Programs
Didn't use.
Onboard Activities
Could have used some more activities because you couldn't get near the pools. Lots of college kids on this cruise and we thought spring break was over.
Destinations and Excursions
Not interested in getting off ship in Cozumel. Went for the ship experience. Loved it when so many went onshore.
Tampa, Florida
Tampa was great as it's a short ride from where we live. Great departure port.
Cozumel, Mexico
Not interested in getting off ship to see Mexico. Couples we were with were sorry they got off. Harrassed by beggars.


Buy the bottle of wine at dinner (if you drink wine) instead of paying $9 a glass. They will hold the bottle from night to night.
