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.

Food and Dining

Great food and servers. Definitely worth buying a bottle of wine and they hold it for future dinners.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
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.

Shows were okay. Early comic show was kind of lame.

Service and Staff

Our room steward (Betty) was great. Even made a towel pet of a collie when she heard we had one.

Ship Quality

Nice size ship....I don't like the huge ones.

Cabin / Stateroom

Love the balcony accomodations. Only way to travel.

Ship Tip

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.

Tampa was great as it's a short ride from where we live. Great departure port.

Not interested in getting off ship to see Mexico. Couples we were with were sorry they got off. Harrassed by beggars.
