Boat & Staff were Great, Food & Shows Lacking

Sail Date: April 18, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The entire staff was always friendly and energetic! The boat was very nice. Cocktails and coffee were great! However, if food is a big focus of your trip, you may want to look at another ship. I know the new thing is to go to the specialty restaurants but that shouldn't mean the rest of us get so so food. The buffet didn't have much variety, (made to order eggs were good) and the dinning room was pretty bland, really, how do you mess up dessert? We went to one specialty restaurant, Izumi, and it was really good! Also, the shows were quite lack luster... heard the one show we missed was the best :( Comedian was quite funny! 

Cabin / Stateroom
Room was bigger than expected. Loved having a balcony! Great spot close to stairs & elevator to the pool.

Destinations and Excursions
Cozumel is always wonderful. Be careful about excursions, found it's best to do things on my own.

Have to get up early if you want a spot near the pool. Spicy margarita at Rita's Cantina is delicious!
