Positive experience, people got along great with each other. Crew was friendly and offered good advice. Dinning room staff was terrific. Always reliable food recommendations and excellent pacing of food items. And singing & dancing (waiters) added to the fun!

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food mostly terrific. Dinning room staff terrific. We choose the late dinning and enjoyed the adult setting. But we found that other dinning venues were nice as well. 95 % of kids on board were great and well behaved. Thanks to their parents efforts.


5 out of 5
Great entertainment. We did both the general audience & adult comedy events. Only down side ~ changing $5 for round of miniature golf was a bit much.

Children's Programs

We didn't have kids with us - but what we heard from parents & saw ourselves the kids program seemed to be great.

It was OK - but if you stay in the Harbor area - it's just like being in the USA
5 out of 5
More like a typical Mexican town. Nice downtown area. Clean, safe & friendly environs.
Don't Miss: We did the LaBoufadora Tour it was good to see the areas away from ship/downtown.

Pros: Excellant dinning room service

Cons: Picture taking by the ships photo staff - a bit excesive
