This is a great cruise for a quick weekend retreat. I went with 2 other friends and we shared a Parlor Suit on the Upper deck. We really enjoyed the room service. The ship's staff was really friendly. We purchased Spa treatments and they were really nice too. The fitness area has a steam room we used daily. The food was okay, not bad enough to complain about but certainly not the best cruise dinning I've had. The other cruise patrons were party oriented, friendly and mostly younger 20-30 somethings, with a few families and older folks too. Most people we talked to were from San Diego or LA areas.

We had a suite with balcony. There were 2 beds and a leather sectional that folded out into a comfortable bed. Room came with glass wear. We brought our own wine. We also tried to get liquor onboard but they took is at check in. They didn't care about the wine.

Pros: Our Suite

Cons: Food was okay, not bad... just okay
