Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I Really enjoyed the variety of food made available on ship! We almost always ate breakfast at the buffet and had room service deliver coffee since the room service coffee was better than the buffet's coffee, and we were able to eat lunch and dinner at a variety of different places! It was a treat!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I went on both slides, which was a blast, the little ridges in the slides were a bit uncomfortable though. I utilized the basketball court for soccer type activities, visited the gym, pool and hot tubs too. I loved comedy club, art gallery, and night club on board.

Considering all the saltwater and how it can cause excessive rust, The ship was well maintained and kept clean, even saw some workers working on some things while I was aboard

This is where we sailed out from, we had a nice BNB we stayed in the night before and I have visited Galveston regularly for its amenities

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
As a group in a wedding party we all chose the VIP catamaran sail and snorkel excursion and I could not have been happier! I was so much fun! I loved the whole crew!

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

5 out of 5
Chose not to do an excursion or leave the port itself to travel into town but was still pleased with the food and atmosphere


5 out of 5
Super easy and the shuttle back to the parking lot was a godsend
