Service and Staff

5 out of 5
very friendly waiter/waitress and room stewards, we want to personally thank one of the steward for his awesome service.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
ship is clean and well-maintained, but we expect more fancy design, anyway, that's maybe the next time.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
we merge two full size to a king size. and the bedding is always clean and comfortable, we sleep even better than home! Not to mention that how many times kids bumped their heads.

Ship tip

bring your own power strip! too limited outlet! especially you need to charge many devices together over night.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

5 out of 5
good place to fishing (done many times) and cruising (first time)

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
the whole Cozumel island is a big resort or resorts! we tried snorkel in Chatanaab park, a must-have experience, recommend!

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

5 out of 5
Chichen Itza, here we come! we didn't spend too much time on Progreso and Merida due to tight schedule. Leave them for next visit


4 out of 5
disembarkation itself is hassle free, the only complain from 12-hour delay outside port due to heavy fog, but, we get one more lunch and one more dinner!
