Review summary

We had a great time on this trip. Went to Cozumel in early March and the weather was perfect. The ship is well kept (a little aged, but not bad) and clean and the staff so friendly.

This was a great cruise. Was for a bachelorette party and we had a great time. Ship seems a little aged, but it's well maintained and clean.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The main dining room was nice and the wait staff lovely. Food was just okay... why this is 4 not a 5. They were able to accommodate our large party easily. The Windjammer is great for lunch but I would forego it for meals available in the main dining room. The food just wasn't as good.

Solarium Bar

5 out of 5

This is where you find the best bar tenders. It seems to be a relatively forgotten about bar, but quickly became our go-to.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We enjoyed the small shows out by the pool during the day. They did a lot to keep the day entertaining and involve the guests. The pools was nice but a bit small for the ship. We really enjoyed karaoke, the lip sync battle and Quest (game show). The MC really made the experiences great.

The DJ on our cruise was TERRIBLE. I really feel he was trying to ruin the evening.
