This was an excellent cruise choice for my husband and I who want to celebrate our 1 year anniversary but wanted to have fun as well. We had balcony room E257 located on deck 7 in the back on the cruise which was just perfect because we had the perfect view of the cruise sailing away. There were lots of activities for our age (early 30s) like comedy shows, clubs, love bands every night, and lots of free liquor tasting lol. We went to key west first which was just ok because we only docked there from 7am-1pm so there wasn't much time to enjoy. But cozumel was the best! We purchased ATV excursion from wild tours online before our cruise and it was worth every penny! We were actually the only 2 on the excursion so we had a personal tour which made the excursion that much more fun! Food was awesome and the staff onboard were super friendly and helpful. We will definitely be cruising again real soon!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
There was a pole in front of our desk which prevented me from putting chair there and doing my makeup but other than that the room was in the perfect location to see the cruise sailing away from the balony. We were one deck below the 21 and over deck and 2 more decks up was the lido deck which made getting to the food really easy bc we just took the stairs which were right in front of our room.

Ship Tip

Make sure you are aware that the cruise will charge about $50 per person for gratuity on about the third day. We weren't aware of this and got confused when we seen we'd spent $200 in one day.
